In the eleventh century a temple was builtfor the Moon-God and three priests were orderedto guard the diamond until the end of time. A cursewas put on any person who stole the diamond, andwhen it was stolen in the eighteenth century by aMuslim leader, he and his children all had greatmisfortunes.Because they want to get the Moonstone back.When they talk about ‘It’, they are referring to thediamond.Colonel Herncastle came to Lady Verinder’s housetwo years ago to wish his niece a happy birthday.Lady Verinder refused to see him and he said,‘I shall remember my niece’s birthday in future.’Obviously, he was very angry, and by giving theMoonstone to Rachel on her birthday, he almostcertainly intended to pass the curse on to her.Because he has been followed by an Indian man inthe last few days. When he hears about the threeIndians who have visited Lady Verinder’s house,he fears that they are the three Indian priests whoguard the diamond and that they have come to getit back.c Pearson Education Limited 2008e Penelope says she thinks it is because Rosanna hasfallen hopelessly in love with Franklin.f Because Franklin had a debt that needed paying.g Because he has recently given up smoking.h Because she is so fascinated by it.

She is veryreligious but is wearing a low-cut dress and likesalcohol.b Because the paint didn’t dry until 3 a.m. on thenight the diamond was stolen, which means thatthe person who made the smear could be the personwho stole the diamond. Penelope has told Cuff thatat midnight the paint had no smear on it. The paintsmear looks as if it was made by a dress, whichmeans the diamond could have been stolen by awoman.c She behaves very strangely.

She comes out of her room to speak toFranklin, then loudly tells Seegrave that no onewill ever find the diamond. She locks herself inher room, where she can be heard crying.

Cuff saysthat he knows Rachel well and that it is impossibleshe stole it, but when Miss Clack explains Cuff ’sreasons for believing this, Mr Bruff is puzzled. MissClack also tells him that Franklin Blake was in thehouse when the diamond disappeared but Mr Bruffgives her good reasons why Franklin could not havestolen the diamond. He says that the only fact weknow is that the Moonstone is in London and thatMr Luker or his banker has it.20 We know that the Moonstone came to Londonbecause Mr Luker was attacked by dark-skinnedmen who took nothing from him but a receipt for anextremely valuable object that he had put in the bank.Cuff had predicted that there would be news aboutMr Luker, who he described as a money-lender. It isclear, therefore, that the men who attacked Mr Lukerwere the Indians and that the object in the bank is theMoonstone.21–22 Open answers23 a friendship marriageb gets better diesc Miss Clack the Ablewhitesd not happy happye Mrs Mrf loved her needed moneyg the diamond a loanh Bruff Murthwaite24 a Godfrey ask Rachel to marry him and she agrees,but after moving to Brighton she tells Godfrey thatshe has changed her mind. Godfrey tells Miss Clackthat he is not upset and will concentrate on hischarity work. We then learn from Mr Bruff that hehad told Rachel what to tell Godfrey: that she hadproof that his motive for asking her to marry himwas financial and that therefore she cannot marryhim. Godfrey accepts this without getting upset,which confirms Mr Bruff ’s belief that Godfreyneeded a large sum of money very quickly.b Mr Bruff tells Rachel that he suspects Godfrey’smarriage offer has financial motives. He is presentduring the conversation with the Ablewhites andinvites Rachel to come and stay with him. InLondon he is visited by one of the three Indians,who ask him for a loan. Mr Bruff refuses but thec Pearson Education Limited 2008Indian then asks, ‘How long would you have givenme to pay it back?’ Mr Bruff answers, ‘A year,’realizing that the Indian’s visit was an excuse forthis question. Soon afterwards, Luker visits himand tells him that the Indian had visited him andasked the same question. Bruff then meets MrMurthwaite who explains why the Indians haveacted in the way they have.25 Because it is clear that Godfrey went to see Luker, amoney-lender, at the end of June in order to pawnthe Moonstone for a large sum of money. Since theIndians stole the receipt for the Moonstone, theyknow that Mr Luker put the Moonstone in the bank.They also now know that one usually has a year torepay a loan and that therefore Godfrey will repay themoney near the end of June 1849. Luker will thentake the Moonstone out of the bank in order to returnit to Godfrey, and this is when the Indians can hope toobtain it.26–28 Open answers29 a 6 b 5 c 4 d 2 e 7 f 1 g 330 a It gives directions on how to find a particular rockat the Shivering Sand and how to find the chainbeneath it and pull up the case that Rosanna hid.b Because the nightgown has a smear of paint on itand Franklin remembers that Sergeant Cuff saidthat if you found the ‘dress with the stain’, youwould know who took the diamond. But Franklinhas no memory of taking the diamond.c She was cleaning his room the day after theMoonstone was stolen.

In order to teach Franklin a lessonabout the power of drugs, Dr Candy gave Franklina dose of opium that night without Franklinknowing about it. If Dr Candy hadn’t become illthat night he would have returned the next day andexplained what he had done. Rachel would haverealized why Franklin had taken the diamond andthe truth would have been revealed.b Ezra Jennings knows this because when he was veryill, Dr Candy talked a lot, and Jennings made notesof what he said. When Franklin tells Jennings thathe took the diamond without knowing it, Jenningssuspects the truth. Jennings is able to put DrCandy’s words together to reveal the fact that thedoctor had given Franklin opium.c Because under the influence of opium, Franklinfinds the diamond but then drops it and becomesvery sleepy. So the group do not learn whathappened to the diamond after Franklin took it.d The ‘mechanic’ kills Godfrey and takes theMoonstone. Mr Murthwaite then discovers thata new temple of the Moon-God is being builtin Banares. Three priests have arrived in the cityand announced that ‘The Eye of the Moon hasreturned.’e It is clear that the Indians have been followingGodfrey for some time and they knew that hehad disguised himself as a sailor when he went tothe bank to get the Moonstone from Luker.

He believesthat Rachel is innocent because he knows her verywell. He says she is ‘wild, stubborn and secretive – butshe’s as honest and true as steel.’ Miss Clack tells himabout Rachel’s declaration that Godfrey Ablewhiteis innocent.
