The Secret Garden pt. 4

Tonight, we’ll read the fourth part to "The Secret Garden", a novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett first published in 1911. Set in England, it is now one of Burnett's most popular novels and seen as a classic of English children's literature.

If you’d like to start from the beginning, the first episode aired March 9th, 2020. The most recent episode, part 3, aired August 5th, 2020. In the last episode, little Mary and the maid Martha get acquainted. 

They are both surprised by the other. Mary is shocked by Martha’s thick Yorkshire dialect and casual, direct manner. Martha is shocked that Mary is helpless to dress herself and is wasteful of eating good food, when her own numerous siblings may go hungry. Where we pick up, Martha has encouraged Mary to walk around outside.
