Summary

Non-Musical. The story is as familiar as you remember. Mary Lennox, a sullen and spoiled young orphan, is sent to live with her brooding uncle at gloomy Misselthwaite Manor. Discovering a hidden, neglected garden, Mary plants the seeds of new life for all those drawn into her secret refuge. A wonderful story of transformation, by far the best adaptation of this story we've ever read. From the author of our immensely popular Anne of Green Gables
