When Elaine leaves her home in London to stay with the Owen family in Wales, she feels miserable and left out. Then, trying to find the end of the rainbow, she discovers a secret garden which makes her decide that life in the country isn't so bad. However, something happens to change all that. When her mother leaves her to go on a business trip Elaine is a selfish, spoiled, stuck-up city girl who only gets pleasure in pleasing herself. Will her mother notice the change in her, following her stay with the Owen family in the Welsh countryside? The stories of Patricia St. John are timeless classics and have been entertaining and challenging children and young people for generations. This new edition of Rainbow Garden is as fresh as it was when it was first published in 1960.
