Welcome back! I am so glad you joined us for Day 2 of our book club discussion of The Secret Garden!
Today’s discussion questions are:
- The Secret Garden isn’t the only thing in the novel that is hidden away and waiting to come alive again. Do you see any parallels between the garden and Mary, Colin, or Mr. Craven?
- What it is about the garden that causes such a dramatic change in Mary and Colin?
- While Mary is transformed by her time in the garden from a sickly, unattractive, and downright unpleasant child into a happy and health heroine but do you think the story would have worked out as well if she had been a polite, well-behaved little girl? In what ways are her faults really strengths and do you think she retains those strengths at the end of the book?
