The Annotated Secret Garden
By Frances Hodgson Burnett

Frances Hodgson Burnett was famous in her time for her adult novels and her forays into children's literature with Little Lord Fauntleroy and A Little Princess. The Secret Garden, her story of an orphan girl who moves from India to the British countryside, has become a favorite book of every generation thereafter.

Gretchen Holbrook Gerzina, the author of the definitive biography of Burnett, brings out aspects of Burnett's life that led her to write the book, including the death of her son and her own love of gardening.

Gerzina explores Burnett's spiritual lean¬ings, which tended toward the mystical. She captures the timeless, magical nature of this beloved tale of three children who come together to restore a hidden garden.

With its extraordinary illustrations, many by major artists of children’s books and in vibrant colours, and photographs of Burnett and her family, The Annotated Secret Garden is an enchanting gift for any child or for any adult who is still a feisty child underneath.
