However, the big house is full of secrets and Mary’s adventures begin while she discovers them. She becomes friends with a robin that helps her find a secret garden kept untouched for 10 years. She sends her time in it to make it fresh and beautiful again. She also finds her cousin who was always in bed for health issues and encourages him to get out and play. His health quickly improves and they become really good friends. She also makes a couple of other friends and is really happy about that because she used to be a disagreeable child and her coming to England changed her character and improved her life.
