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.
Karen Gillan is a delight
I loved this simple story! It had a lot of heart and most of all magic. Karen Gillan is a delight to the ears as narrator.
Wonderful story and The Narrator is awesome!
Karen Gillan Magnificence!
Got this audiobook after I heard Karen Gillan was narrating it. I've wanted to read The Secret Garden for awhile now, but had no immediate plans to do so until now. It doesn't matter whether you are a Doctor Who, Karen Gillan fan or you've never heard of her, you'll enjoy her beautiful narration either way. she does a beautiful Yorshire accent for a good part of the book, and the voices she does not only bring the characters to life, they each have their own individual voice and characteristics. I've now fallen in love with this story and can't wait to finish listening to it.
