Mrs. (Dr. Swan) Burnett came to America in 1865, but she was born in Manchester, England. No doubt she discovered many secret gardens of her own while growing up there. She also loved to make up stories and act them out with her dolls as the characters. Years later, her book, "Little Lord Fauntleroy" caused many little American boys to be dressed up in velvet suits and lace collars, but it was "The Secret Garden" that touched us all.
Her children's books were made into movies and several of her grown-up books were made into plays. A total of 52 were published over the years, but very few are still in print. I would love to read all of them, but they are very hard to find.
