The story tells of an orphaned girl who is sent to a desolate Y6rkshire manor house to live th her cold, withdrawn uncle. Her uncle still suffers from the loss of his beautiful young wife and his only son is locked away, waiting to die from an unnamed, but terrible malady that may only exist in his mind. While sadness and dark moods cloak the halls of the manor house, outside, the forces of na- ture refuse to give in to desolation. Spring will not be held back, and life will bloom forth if given half a chance. Waiting for new foliage and buds to brighten lives, caring spirits watch over the manor and the moor, protecting and guiding those who are lost and forlorn. Children who believe in faith sea- soned with a magic charm or two are determined to unlock the se- crets of the garden and their inno- cent hope finally makes all the hearts bldom.
