When I was around 9 or 10 when I really started to get into reading, I picked up this book and was engrossed. I loved it so much that I'm pretty sure this is all I read that summer over and over and over again and am elated that I can share this now with a very special little girl in my life. I love how this takes you to you own special garden...

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was smart, sophisticated and heartwarming. It was also very original, and had an awesome ending.

The reason I got this book was because of the beautiful cover illustration. When I read it (which was right away), I loved it. Unlike most books, you catch on really fast to the characters and story. You feel like a part of the story when you read this book. I thought the main character, Mandy, was very imaginative. Mandy loved gardens, so that made it even more fun to read. The story was easy to picture in your head. The author was really creative. I liked it so much that I bought another copy as a Christmas gift for a good friend. I would recommend it for girls ages 8-12. You should definitely read this book.

This is a beautiful book. My mother read it to me when I was quite small, I reread it as an adult and I don't even recall anything but lovely language used in the book. All your fears are lies.

When I first read Mandy I was either nine or ten. My adopted grandparents from the church that we attended gave me this book as a Christmas gift. I read this book over and over again. Now that I am a mother I enjoy reading it more. Julie Edwards is a wonderful and amazing author and I enjoy all of the writing that she has done.

There are many things about this book to like. It is an interesting, if somewhat predictable, story that is well told. However, at the same time, there are a few occurrences of 'By God' or 'My God' used as interjections (which is taking the Lord's name in vain) and one 'dammit' (which is cursing). I suppose that these are included to make it sound 'realistic.' However, everyone agrees that children should NOT be taught to talk like that, so for the life of me I cannot figure out why authors of children's books want to include that kind of language in their works. It just boggles my mind. If it were not for this, I would have given the book an excellent rating.

Summary- Mandy is a 10-year-old orphan who is very kind. Matron Bridie, the woman who runs the orphanage where Mandy lives is very nice and even though Mandy is an orphan, she thinks life is pretty good. One day while Mandy is out exploring the woods around the orphanage, she finds an abandoned cottage. Even though the cottage is very run-down, Mandy feels like it is a place just for her. She spends days and weeks fixing it up. She takes things from the orphanage to help her fix the cottage. She also begins lying about where she is going so that no one else will find her special place. While at the cottage, Mandy becomes terribly sick and no one knows where she is! Mandy regrets not letting anyone know about where she goes, but is it too late? Opinion- The first thing I thought when I started reading this book was – “Wow! A happy orphan who isn’t abused and likes the woman running the place!” That made me laugh because usually the books I read start off with a troubled kid usually an orphan or ignored by his or her parents. It was nice to read a different story plot. Besides Mandy actually being a happy orphan, I thought the story was very nice and it kept me wanting to read it until the end. I liked reading about Mandy fixing up the cottage. I thought Mandy was a realistic character and could understand why she wanted a place of her own. I found out that Mandy is the first book Ms. Andrews Edwards wrote and that she wrote the story for her step-daughter. Ms. Andrews Edwards has a way of telling stores that makes you care about the characters and that makes her stories even better. *NOTE - This book was given to me as a gift

I liked it alot. It was funny sad and deeply rewarding. Only bad thing is it might be a little to predictable. All around a great read.

My cousin gave this book to me when I was a kid, probably 10. I still look at this book as my favorite book ever. I am the type that likes to fantasize and this book took me there. Very well written and just an enjoyable read. I am now 49.5 and still remember this book as my favorite.

This book is heartwarming and absorbing. It is a great book to read if you like adventure. It has great wording and adjectives. I find it very fun to read. I never wanted to put it down. It made me go into a different world, a world of fantasy. This was written and typed by a 12 year old girl.

This book was a birthday present from my godmother for my tenth birthday (in 1970). The character and the story was so touching that I re-read the book through most of my childhood and into my teen years. As an adult and some 35 years later, the character and the story remains a treasured childhood literary memory. This book has been a cherished companion and a most memorable gift. My thanks to Julie Edwards for fueling my love for literary works and giving us the wonderful world of Mandy.
