The Secret Garned Author:Frances Hodgson Burnett Mary is sullen and ugly. Orphaned, unloved and left alone, she has no reason to live. Colin is twisted and dying. Crippled, vicius, rejected by his own family, he has no hope to live. But Dickson is strange and wild. He sleeps on the moors, calls animals to him, and speaks the language of flowers - all he knows is how to live.
