“If tha’ goes round that way tha’ll come to
th’ gardens,” she said, pointing to a gate in
a wall of shrubbery. “There’s lots o’ flowers in summer-time,
but there’s nothin’ bloomin’ now.”
She seemed to hesitate a second before she added,
“One of th’ gardens is locked up.
No one has been in it for ten years.”

“Why?” asked Mary in spite of herself.
Here was another locked door added to
the hundred in the strange house.

Hoi Anna,

Frances Hodgson Burnett is voor mij een bekende. Ik heb een deel van haar boeken gelezen toen ik nog een lerarenopleiding Engels volgde. Een van mijn favorieten is 'Little Lord Fauntleroy'!

Fijne avond!

Lieve groet, Madelief
