Grade 8 Reading Lesson 3 Classics – The Secret Garden

Mary Lennox, a 10-year-old girl, is born in India to wealthy British parents. Spoiled with a temper, she is unaffectionate, angry, rude and obstinate. A cholera breakout in the manor kills Mary’s parents and many servants. She is discovered alone but alive after the house is abandoned. She is sent to England to live with her uncle, Archibald Craven.
This lesson is about her journey from India to England with the officer’s wife, Mrs. Medlock. Hope you enjoy this story from The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett.
