Return to the Secret Garden by Holly Webb
It’s 1939 and a group of children have been evacuated to Misselthwaite Hall. Emmie is far from happy to have been separated from her cat and sent to a huge old mansion. But soon she starts discovering the secrets of the house – a boy crying at night, a diary written by a girl named Mary and a garden. A very secret garden…
“I’m sure I would have enjoyed reading Return to the Secret Garden as a child – it takes some of the best features of the original and puts them into a familiar yet strikingly altered setting. It’s a cute, quick read.” – Julianne at This Fleeting Dream.
“Return to the Secret Garden is a beautifully written sequel to a much loved classic. Simply written against the backdrop of the Second World War, with subtle nods to the original novel, Holly Webb has written a charming and enjoyable story, which can be enjoyed by children and adults alike.” – Sam at The Little Munchkin Reader.
“Holly Webb has recreated the setting beautifully and as well as introducing us to new characters, she fills in the story as to what happened to the original characters which I really enjoyed. It is a great read, compelling and engaging.” – Geraldine at Powered by Reading.
“I would highly recommend this book to people who loved the original, and anyone who wants to be immersed in a world that is somehow whimsical, and yet true to the pain and beauty of reality.” – Amy at YA Under My Skin.
