Frances Hodgson Burnett's classic children's novel is about orphaned Mary Lennox, who is sent to live with her uncle at Misslethwaite Manor in Yorkshire. Initially a sour, bad-tempered child, Mary begins to bloom under the influence of nature when she discovers a long-abandoned garden on the grounds of her uncle's estate. Burnett's novel is brought to life by LibriVox volunteers who lend their voices to her characters. (Summary by Elizabeth Klett)

A Great Listen!

(5 Sterne)

Have never read this book and this is the first time I've listened to a "dramatic reading". wow!! It brings the story alive & some of the readers/actors are great at their parts. Will try to listen to more stories like this.

excellent reading of a classic tale

(5 Sterne)

a wonderful cast of readers doing a fantastic job. a classic tale that i have watched in movie form. the book starts a little different from the movie but i enjoy it. and while the movie hits at early love among the three children, the book sticks to childish happiness and horseplay. a book many boys may not have interest in unless they love nature.

I've read this lovely book . Have you?

(4,5 Sterne)

So many narrow escapes . Awesome! it's nice to have one person for every character Elizabeth .
