    I know this book seems out of place among the fare I usually read, but hey, all I can say is that I like what I like.

    Where, you tend a rose, my lad, a thistle cannot grow. Originally published in 1911 The Secret Garden is a true children’s  classic.  One that adults should read as well.  Mary Lennox was born in India.  A plain little girl she was not wanted by her mother or father and consequentl...
