    A sequel of sorts to The Secret Garden--with a few of the characters from A Little Princess thrown in.

However, war breaks out, and it's every man for himself! Dickon and Colin go off to fight and Mary's future isn't as rosy without Colin after all. Could she tell him how she feels about him before it's too late?

    Summary

    “That dreary old house? The wind howling at night like a poor lost soul would be enough to drive any person mad who weren’t already.”

    “Oh, it’s not like that at all,” Dr. Lennox answered impatiently. “There’s nothing like the fresh air from the moor and physical activity outdoors to make the body and mind well again. We’re scientists, not spiritualists or gothic novelists, surely.”

     
    (In which Dr. Lennox, Dr. Craven, and Mr. Sowerby run an asylum at Misselthwaite.)
