May ha perduto la famiglia per un'epidemia di colera e si trova a vivere nel castello del ricchissimo zio, lord Archibald Craven. L'uomo vive nel grande palazzo in mezzo alla brughiera e ha fatto chiudere il giardino privato che è per lui carico di tristi ricordi. May riesce a fare di quel giardino uno spazio da sogno, in cui ha ritagliato il proprio rifugio segreto, e il luogo della rinascita per sé e per il cugino che non aveva mai saputo di avere. Un grande classico che insegna a sconfiggere la paura e a far trionfare gli affetti e la speranza. Età di lettura: da 9 anni.
