“There was someone crying-there was!”

In this Chapter Mary goes around the house, because she had nothing to do  it was raining.
 After hours and hours walking around the house, she saw a picture of a girl with a parrot. Mary Lennox wanted the girl to be there, so she could play with someone. Then, she found a big room which had a closet with a huge quantity of little white elephants. Mary played with them for hours and hours. When she was tired, she tried to go back to her bedroom, but she (unfortunately) meets Mrs. Medlock. Mary says she turned the wrong corner and that there was someone crying, but Mrs. Medlock was very angry and didn’t wanted to listen to Mary.  

“The cry in the corridor"

One day, Mary Lennox woke up with appetite- she was HUNGRY! She didn’t take her eyes off her breakfast- only when it was all eaten. Martha sees that and says to the Indian girl that she was very proud of Mary.
When Mary goes out, she discovers that the robin which is Ben Weatherstaff’s friend is now her friend too!
She was so happy that she discovers a new feeling-love. She discovers that someone (even if it’s a robin) likes her and she likes it too.
In the afternoon, when Martha was in Mary’s room, they hear a very low cry. Martha says it is nothing- it’s just the wind in the moor.

"Across the Moor"

In this chapter, the author tells us how Mary Lennox arrived at Misselthwaite Manor, her uncle’s house.
She arrived there at night, so she couldn’t release what is a moor. Mrs. Medlock told her that her uncle, Mr. Archibald Craven, didn’t want to see the girl. She wasn’t surprised: nobody ever wanted to see her. Mary was told that she couldn’t go out of her room. Never. Ever.

"Mistress Mary quite contrary"

In this Chapter, the author tells us that Mary was so ugly that nobody wanted to play or be with her.
Mrs. Medlock, the housekeeper of Mary’s uncle’s house, Misselthwaite Manor (where the girl would live) told her about her uncle, Mr. Archibald Craven and his big house, which had a hundred rooms, most of which were locked up.
Mary was told that Mr. Craven was married to a beautiful woman who died ten years before Mary arrived at the Misselthwaite. Mr. Craven was so sad when his wife died, that he never wanted anybody to see him, except for Pitcher, his butler. (link to the book).
