Frances Eliza Hodgson Burnett (24 November 1849 – 29 October 1924) was an American-English novelist and playwright. She is best known for the three children's novels Little Lord Fauntleroy (published in 1885–1886), A Little Princess (1905), and The Secret Garden (1911).

Frances Eliza Hodgson was born in Cheetham, England. After her father died in 1852, the family fell on straitened circumstances and in 1865 immigrated to the United States, settling near Knoxville, Tennessee. There Frances began writing to help earn money for the family, publishing stories in magazines from the age of 19. In 1870 her mother died, and in 1872 Frances married Swan Burnett, who became a medical doctor. The Burnetts lived for two years in Paris, where their two sons were born, before returning to the United States to live in Washington, D.C., Burnett then began to write novels, the first of which (That Lass o' Lowrie's), was published to good reviews. Little Lord Fauntleroy was published in 1886 and made her a popular writer of children's fiction, although her romantic adult novels written in the 1890s were also popular. She wrote and helped to produce stage versions of Little Lord Fauntleroy and A Little Princess.

Burnett enjoyed socializing and lived a lavish lifestyle. Beginning in the 1880s, she began to travel to England frequently and in the 1890s bought a home there where she wrote The Secret Garden. Her oldest son, Lionel, died of tuberculosis in 1890, which caused a relapse of the depression she had struggled with for much of her life. She divorced Swan Burnett in 1898, married Stephen Townsend in 1900, and divorced Townsend in 1902. A few years later she settled in Nassau County, Long Island, where she died in 1924 and is buried in Roslyn Cemetery.

In 1936 a memorial sculpture by Bessie Potter Vonnoh was erected in her honour in Central Park's Conservatory Garden. The statue depicts her two famous Secret Garden characters, Mary and Dickon.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING!!
Reviewed in the United States on June 28, 2021
Wow! I loved this so much! I’m really loving children’s classics so far! This was such a heartwarming story! Full of “magic”, imagination, & hope! Sara is just the most amazing little girl ever. She is so unlike other little girls, & I loved every unique thing about her. Her “pretending” really helped her for when things got too hard to bear. It helped her endure all the hardships she had to face. She was good down to the core. Such a fine “little missus”. So many amazing characters! Like Sara & Becky. And some horrible characters like Miss Minchin & Lavinia-ohhh I couldn’t stand them! So awful! Miss Minchin is the worst. The absolute child abuse she does to Sara is horrific. The kindness Sara shows to Becky, & to EVERYONE-even the ones who are horrid to her, is truly remarkable. So many scenes had me emotional, like with the starving girl on the street towards the end, & then everything that happens at the end in general. How you treat people says a lot about you, and everything comes back around to you in time as well. Such an amazing, book hug-able story. So happy I finally read this. Highly recommend. I have a few editions, but I read this beautiful copy I have w/the stunning cover & illustrations by Anna Bond. Beautiful!💜

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad translation? Awful edition
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on June 2, 2020
It seems this edition has been translated into another language and then back again via Google translate - half of the sentences don't even make sense, e.g. "...she attracted the attention of Miss Minchin, who, feeling extraordinarily move in the intervening time, without delay pounced on her." (See image)
No idea where this has come from but DO NOT BUY THIS! Look for a classic edition instead. Very unhappy with this purchase and would like my money back.
