The Secret Garden - Frances Hodgson Burnett Overall a sweet little story from days of yore.I really liked that the protagonist started as a plain, disagreeable, unlovable child. Ok, so she did make a 180 degree change in both looks and temperament by the end of the book, but the way that the story is woven it seems the right and proper course.I also really liked that giving it's historical context all due consideration, there was remarkable little sexism or classism.My biggest pet peeve? The dialogue of those with the Yorkshire accents. I understand the purpose behind it, but have always found such a tad annoying.
