Newly released, this is a sympathetic yet vivacious reading of the classic story of sullen, young Mary Lennox being transformed, by the magic of a garden and the moors, into a sensitive child who restores the invalid. Colin. Carole Boyd is particularly good at conveying the Yorkshire warmth of Mrs Medlock and her children whom Mary grows to love, as well as Mary's gradually dissolving haughtiness. Being unabridged, it includes what must be the most chilling opening to a children's story - the rescue of abandoned little Mary in India when all around her have been wiped out by cholera.
