Welcome! Each month you will find here a specially chosen new release or beautifully bound book, which will always be accompanied by a wonderful bonus gift!

To celebrate spring, our May choice is The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett, and this month it comes free with our full sized Secret Garden themed candle.

After losing her parents, young Mary Lennox is sent from India to live in her uncle’s gloomy mansion on the wild English moors.  She is lonely and has no one to play with, but one day she learns of a secret garden somewhere in the grounds that no one is allowed to enter.  Then Mary uncovers an old key in a flowerbed - and a gust of magic leads her to the hidden door.  Slowly she turns the key and enters a world she could never have imagined.

Why Novel North loves Rewild Yourself

'The Secret Garden is a childhood favourite.  And no matter how many times you revisit, the magic always draws you in.  Seeing the world through Mary’s eyes, you feel the sense of wonder as she discovers so many of the secrets of Misselthwaite Estate and surrounding moors, and you come away feeling excited and inspired to make discoveries of your own.’
