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.

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 him 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.

Frances Hodgson Burnett - The White People
The White People is a novella by the English-American author of the bestselling classics Little Lord Fauntleroy and The Secret Garden, among other titles. Frances Hodgson Burnett dedicates the present work to the soul of her lost son Lionel. Burnett's biographers agree that after this loss Burnett's depression made her resort to spiritualism. Narrated in the first person, the story is basically a contemplation of existential questions such as the meaning of life and death and the belief in life after death. The White People is set in the Muircarrie Castle in a remote misty region of Scotland and the narrative rather looks like an autobiography told by the female protagonist. She is the young heiress of a noble couple who have just died to leave her in the castle among her servants. She tells how she is visited by relatives from London from time to time and describes how different she is from other children in the family. The somehow secluded female protagonist delves into visions about death and the will to live. By the end of the narrative, she asserts that all her imaginings were mere fantasy, though she recognizes the importance of such meditations.

Could it open the door to the garden?
