导读

在一个大庄园里,有一个废弃的秘密花园,连门都找不到。一个名叫玛丽的小女孩 无意中从泥土里挖出花园的钥匙,并且找到了秘密花园隐藏的门。这个原本任性、暴戾的小女孩爱上了这个花园。她和佃户的儿子,小男孩迪肯一起重新在花园里栽 花种草。在花园里,一切都在阳光下茁壮成长,玛丽和柯林抹掉了所有讨人厌的坏毛病,长成了漂亮的姑娘和健壮的小伙子。他们把这一切,都归功于大自然的魔 法。

When orphaned Mary Lennox, lonely and sad, comes to live at her uncle's great house on the Yorkshire moors, she finds it full of secrets. At night, she hears the sound of crying down one of the long corridors. Outside, she meets Dickon, a magical boy who can charm and talk to animals. Then, one day, with the help of a friendly robin, Mary discovers the most mysterious wonder of all—a secret garden, walled and locked, which has been completely forgotten for years and years. Is everything in the garden dead, or can Mary bring it back to life?

简介

失去双亲的玛丽•伦诺克斯被送到米瑟斯韦特庄园和她姑父克雷文先生一起生活。 克雷文先生丧偶十年来一直脾气乖戾,封锁了爱妻当年辛苦培植照料的花园,不愿再付出爱与关心。他不敢敞开心胸面对初来乍到的玛丽,甚至对他的亲生儿子也很 冷漠。玛丽与小伙伴们一起躲过女管家的监管到花园里玩耍,也从生生不息的大自然学到了许多。远游的姑夫返家后发现儿子会站立行走了,娇贵倔强的玛丽会伤感 落泪了,自己也露出难得的欢笑。秘密花园终于不再是秘密。

Mary Lennox, a 10-year-old girl, is born in India to wealthy British parents. Spoiled and with a temper, she is unaffectionate, angry, rude and obstinate. But one day, she became an orphan and then went to live with her uncle.

At first, Mary is her usual self, sour, disliking the large house, the people within it. But one day Martha Sowerby, her good-natured maidservant, tells Mary a story of the late Mrs. Craven, and how she would spend hours in a private garden growing roses. Later, Mrs. Craven was killed by an untimely accident, and Mr. Craven had the garden locked and the key buried. Mary is roused by this story and starts to soften her ill manner despite herself. While exploring the gardens, Mary comes across a badger hole and finds a key belonging to the untended garden. Mary and her little companions look after the garden carefully. They become tender and full of pity and learn a lot of things from the nature, which to Mr. Craven, who was traveling and mourning over his late wife, is a pleasant surprise.

书摘

起初,人们不相信一件新奇的事情能够成功,随后,他们又希望可以成功,接着,他们见证了成功——最后,果然成功了,而整个世界便纳闷为什么一个世纪之前这件事情无法办到。

At first people refuse to believe that a strange new thing can be done, then they begin to hope it can be done, then they see it can be done—then it is done and all the world wonders why it was not done centuries ago.
