Journal Entry 1 by Cfreckle from Sheffield, South Yorkshire United Kingdom on Wednesday, July 22, 2015

"One of th' gardens is locked up. No one has been in it for ten years."

When orphaned Mary Lennox comes to live at her uncle's great house on the Yorkshire Moors, she finds it full of mysterious secrets. There are nearly one hundred rooms, most of which are locked, and the house is filled with creepy old portraits and suits of armor. Mary rarely sees her uncle, and perhaps most unsettling of all is that at night she hears the sound of someone crying down one of the long corridors.

The gardens surrounding the odd property are Mary's escape and she explores every inch of them—all except for the mysterious walled-in, locked garden. Then one day, Mary discovers a key. Could it open the door to the garden?

Journal Entry 6 by wingLittleSuzwing at Edinburgh, Scotland United Kingdom on Sunday, July 01, 2018

7 out of 10

I read this during the spring which turned out to be the very best time. The author's enthusiasm for the magic of that season is infectious and I soon found myself examining the clematis in our garden whilst repeating "it's wick!" over and over in my head.

The story is very sweet, and quite poignant to read as a parent. I like the way the children were grumpy and unpleasant for large parts of it. But the novel is also very overdone and unrealistic in many places. Gardens may be nice, but I don't think they are *quite* as emotionally transformative for young children as is depicted here!
