Publisher Description

Frances Hodgson Burnett’s charming childhood adventure story is read by Avengers actress Karen Gillan.

The Secret Garden is the story of Mary Lennox, a spoiled rich girl who is suddenly orphaned—and sent to live in her uncle’s remote Yorkshire estate. This arrangement does not sit well with Mary…until the day she stumbles upon a locked door that leads into an abandoned garden. Frances Hodgson Burnett’s most famous book is an adventure story about a little girl finding and creating her own happiness in a place that at first feels unfamiliar and even scary.

The talented Scottish actress Karen Gillan—who has appeared on-screen in the Avengers movies and on TV’s Doctor Who—narrates this Apple Books exclusive version of Burnett’s much-loved childhood classic, a magical world you won’t want to leave.

I’ll be honest!

I’ll be honest I am not much of a reader or audiobooks person but Karen Gillian made me want to be a kid again and find my own secret garden. She made every character come to life. This is something I will listen to over and over. Thanks to her, I look forward to reading and finding audiobooks with narrators that bring the story to life just as she did.
