The country cottage where May is staying is rumored to be haunted is it true?
Eleven-year-old May's life changes dramatically when she leaves the city and moves to Thornton Hall, a big house in the countryside where her grown-up brother Ben has got the job of gardener despite having been less than truthful about his qualifications! With her new friend, Alex, May discovers that life at the Hall isn’t quite as simple as it seems. What lies behind the locked tower room door that housekeeper Mrs. Daniels guards so closely? As May and Alex begin a journey of discovery, transforming the Hall's overgrown walled garden, Mrs Daniels starts to close in on Ben's little secret. Could May be about to lose Thornton Hall just as she realizes its power to be the making of both her and Alex?

Gillian Walton's voice is upbeat as Mary, who is called May by the older brother and sister who raise her. Though she was orphaned at a young age, May is chipper about her life, even though we meet her in the midst of major transitions. Her sister has decided to travel the world, her brother gets a garden job at Thorton Hall, and, more than ever, May thinks her life resembles that of Mary, the heroine of her favorite video, THE SECRET GARDEN. Walton's passionate tones convey May's enthusiasm as she creates a secret garden with her new friend, Alex, helps him understand his relationship with his father, and maintains her curiosity for her unfolding life.
