NotesB/W. A young girl who has lost her parents (to cholera) goes to live with her uncle at a neglected Victorian house and finds a 'hidden' garden with the help of a raven. In the house she discovers her uncle has a son who is disabled. The two of them along with the housemaid's brother make it their secret garden. The nature of the boy's disability is not, I believe, revealed. Though it has been suggested he has rickets from being inside too much. Though this was more common among the poor from a bad diet and deficiency of vitamin D. See also 1987 version below. From book by Frances Hodgson Burnett.
