Mary Lennox and her cousin, Colin Craven, the main characters in The Secret Garden , undoubtedly Burnett's best known work, stand in stark opposition to Sara's almost too-perfect person. Both Mary and Colin are vile little creatures who, through death and indifference, have been left to be raised by servants. Growing up in India, Mary is unwanted by her mother and handed into the care of an Ayah as soon as possible.
She begins life as a "sickly, fretful, ugly little baby" who grows into a "sickly, fretful toddling thing. Colin has suffered equally, abandoned by is father who continues to grieve the death of his mother ten years later but also because, sick from birth, Archibald Craven cannot bear the sight of his son and the thought that he, too, might grow to have a hunchback. In turn, Colin cannot bear to have anyone except a handful of servants see him and he remains hidden away in Misselthwaite Manor.
Chapter 7: An Apple
Colin's genuine illnesses have spilled over into hysteria and his frequent fits only serve to feed his physical and mental deterioration. It's amazing, really, that Burnett is able to craft such a memorable, moving story with two entirely unlikable children at its center. Left to her own devices, and with the occasional friendship and guidance of Martha, the sensible young maid who comes from a family of twelve, Mary discovers the secret garden, the one that was locked up and forgotten when Mrs Craven, who's garden it was, died there. With the help of Ben Weatherstaff, one of the gardeners at the Manor, and Dickon, Martha's moor-roaming, nature loving, animal-whispering younger brother, Mary discovers the beauty and joy in nature and a sense of purpose in growing the secret garden back to former glory.
Mary also discovers Colin and, being equally unpleasant and imperious, the two become fast friends and find healing and health in the garden.
As much as I admire Sara Crewe and her selfless qualities, she has always struck me as a very mature, stoic character in the way that she bears her suffering patiently. Mary and Colin share none of these qualities and, even when they do begin to find their personalities transformed, they remain childish in their outlooks and secretive in their ways.
They talk of "magic" as a way of explaining the changes in the garden and themselves so often that you almost want to shake their frail little shoulders.menmececolre.cf/map11.php
Waiting For You (Guilty Crown) [Final Book of the Secret Garden Trilogy]
One other striking similarity between the two books is the use of animals as important parts of the story. However, a good-natured maid named Martha Sowerby tells Mary about the late Mrs Craven, who would spend hours in a private walled garden growing roses. Mrs Craven died after an accident in the garden, and the devastated Mr. Craven locked the garden and buried the key. Mary becomes interested in finding the secret garden herself, and her ill manners begin to soften as a result. Soon she comes to enjoy the company of Martha, the gardener Ben Weatherstaff, and a friendly robin redbreast.
Her health and attitude improve, and she grows stronger as she explores the moor and plays with a skipping rope that Mrs Sowerby buys for her. Mary wonders about both the secret garden and the mysterious cries that echo through the house at night. As Mary explores the gardens, her robin draws her attention to an area of disturbed soil. Here Mary finds the key to the locked garden and eventually the door to the garden itself.
She asks Martha for garden tools, which Martha sends with Dickon, her year-old brother. Mary and Dickon take a liking to each other, as Dickon has a kind way with animals and a good nature. Eager to absorb his gardening knowledge, Mary tells him about the secret garden. One night, Mary hears the cries once more and decides to follow them through the house. She is startled when she finds a boy her age named Colin, who lives in a hidden bedroom. She soon discovers that they are cousins, Colin being the son of Mr and Mrs Craven, and that he suffers from an unspecified spinal problem which precludes him from walking and causes him to spend most of his time in bed.
Mary visits him every day that week, distracting him from his troubles with stories of the moor, Dickon and his animals, and the secret garden. Mary finally confides that she has access to the secret garden, and Colin asks to see it.

Colin and Mary soon spend almost every day in the garden, sometimes with Dickon as company. The children and Ben conspire to keep Colin's recovering health a secret from the other staff, so as to surprise his father, who is travelling abroad. As Colin's health improves, his father sees a coinciding increase in spirits, culminating in a dream where his late wife calls to him from inside the garden. When he receives a letter from Mrs Sowerby, he takes the opportunity finally to return home. He walks the outer garden wall in his wife's memory, but hears voices inside, finds the door unlocked, and is shocked to see the garden in full bloom, and his son healthy, having just won a race against the other two children.
The servants watch, stunned, as Mr Craven and Colin walk back to the manor together.
The secret garden at Misselthwaite Manor is the site of both the near-destruction and the subsequent regeneration of a family. Parts of it were written during Burnett's visits to Buile Hill Park ,  The Secret Garden was first serialised, starting in autumn , in The American Magazine , a publication aimed at adults.

To throw an apple at someone was to symbolically declare one's love. To catch it was to symbolically show one's acceptance of that love. I was in high spirits for some reason that I can't explain. Actually, I don't know myself. Just the thought of heading to school seems to excite me. I used to drag my feet to school silently, hoping to just go on in the day unnoticed. Just like a Shadow I stopped in my tracks and wondered what was it exactly that made me change I turned around and saw a familiar blonde head boy standing just a metre away from me.
He was playing with an apple in his hand, throwing and catching it repeatedly.
