THE MAGICAL POWER OF FAITH — A REVIEW

A delightful classic tale of hope, faith, and courage, The Secret Garden spotlights three children who are unique and somewhat “weird” in the eyes of their peers.

Mary Lennox grew up in India, but has come to live with her uncle Archibald Craven in Yorkshire. Upon her arrival, she is demanding, imperious, and not at all healthy. But gradually, after meeting a boy who lives across the moor, she begins to blossom. Discovering a secret garden seems to inspire a sense of magic in the two children, which then extends to the young master of the house, Colin, who has always believed that he is too fragile to do anything at all, and that he is, in fact, dying.

The three children demonstrate the power of believing in something and almost magically change their lives.

The Yorkshire dialect, the beautifully described settings, and the core message are worthwhile reasons to still read this classic. This was my first read of this book…and I’m awarding it four stars.

    • Thanks, Sheila…as you know, I’m constantly tweaking my sites, but I’ve finally found a theme that appeals to me. I love the background, too, with the kids in the trees.

      Glad you could stop by, and hope you enjoy The Secret Garden. It only took me several decades to read it! lol

    • Oh, I can imagine they would love it, Alyce. I can “hear” the accents in my head while reading, but I wouldn’t be able to vocalize them…lol

      I would love to be able to do that!

      Thanks for stopping by.
