"There is no one left"

The first chapter of the book tells the reader about Mary Lennox, an ugly girl with a yellow face, a little thin body, thin light hair and a sour expression. She lived in India.
She always had an Ayah, a woman who did everything for her. Then, one day, this woman wasn’t there. She died of cholera, like Mary’s parents and many more servants that worked in her house.
On the day her Ayah didn’t come, nobody remembered Mary, so she stayed in her room the whole day, doing nothing. Then, an English official found her, and Mary realized she was the only person in the house. (Chapter Link)

The Secret Garden

For my new English project, I’ll be reading the book “The Secret Garden” and watch a part of the movie. Every week, I’ll post something about the book and the movie.

“The Secret Garden” is a novel first published in 1911.The author is Frances Hodgson Burnett. She also wrote the book “A Little Princess”. She lived in Manchester. When her father died, her family moved to Salford. When she was sixteen, her family moved to Knoxville, Tennessee. She died in 1924, in Long Island, New York.
