Introduction

7 November 2011 English Coursework ?Assignment 2 Hound of the Baskervilles- Dairy writing (Mrs. Stapleton) 20 October Dear diary: I am mentally and physically exhausted but I need to write this diary to record the experience of my ordeal.

I found myself crying with happiness. Now I am relieved and feel soothed after the salvage. However, I worry about what will happen to me next? I have been neglected and live a life of deceit. I don?t want to live in fear, suspicion and possible attack again, worrying my husband would plan another crime? Does my husband really love me? Why do we have to pretend to be brothers and sisters? Why was I being used to attract Sir Henry? I was torn between saving Sir Henry and hating my husband. What should I do? I worry about my future? I prayed and prayed. I am lonely and hopeless in the world. Will god shed light on me? Word count : 708 ...read more.
