Frances Hodgson Burnett - Author

About the Author

Frances Hodgson Burnett (1849-1924) was born in Manchester, England, on November 24, 1849. Her mother moved to Knoxville, Tenessee in 1865. Miss Hodgson began writing for magazines soon after. Her first widely-known story appeared in "Scribner's Magazine" in 1872.

Frances married Dr. L. M. Burnett of Washington D.C. in 1873. In 1898 she divorced Dr. Burnett and married Mr. Stephen Townsend in 1900.

Her reputation as a novelist was made with her story of Lancashire life, That Lass o' Lowrie's. A number of other works followed, with Through One Administration and A Lady of Quality as the most notable.

In 1886 she published the Little Lord Fauntleroy, which was dramatized during her life and (now safely out of copyright) continues as videos and movies. Her children's books, including the marvelous Secret Garden and Sara Crew (later rewritten to become: A Little Princess) are what she is best known for today, but her romance novels were very popular during her lifetime.

When spoiled rich girl, Mary Lennox, is orphaned, she is shipped from India to live in her uncle's enormous manor in faraway England. The lonely girl is forbidden to play in most of the imposing house - struggling to adjust to her new surroundings, she goes out into the grounds every day. Before long, Mary finds a key to a secret garden that has been left untouched for ten years, and a whole new world of enchantment opens up to her. For the first time she learns to make friends - with the talented animal-charmer, Dickon, and her sickly cousin, Colin, who has been hidden away behind closed doors - and between them, the three children truly flourish as the garden reveals its haunting secrets. First published in 1911, Frances Hodgson Burnett's story is one of the best-loved children's books of the early twentieth century. This beautiful new edition brings together the complete and unabridged text with over seventy evocative illustrations and botanical studies by the award-winning artist Robert Ingpen.
