Frances Hodgson Burnett

Dear Friends and Ruin by Minerva McTabby

'This must be what it's like to find a diamond.' Very believable expansion of a few lines in the source that made me long to revisit the original (A Little Princess)

[Added 30/12/2005; Drama; 2500-6000; Frances Hodgson Burnett]

A Garden in the Punjab by Rosemaryandrue

'Amarjeet pushed aside a curtain of flowers, and stepped into the heart of the garden. In here, she could barely see the walls of the house. It was a secret garden, a Punjabi garden in the midst of the British Raj.' Sympathetic original characters inhabit this vivid story of three women and another secret garden (The Secret Garden)

[Added 01/02/2011; Drama; 6000-20,000; Frances Hodgson Burnett]

Wick by Orichalxos

'The war has passed through the Sowerbys like a scythe through dry grass.' A delicate, moving story on the power of nature to heal. Simply wonderful (The Secret Garden)

[Added 01/02/2011; Character Piece; 1000-2500; Frances Hodgson Burnett]
