They engage a temporary nurse, Mrs Jazeph, who alarms Rosamond by her strange behaviour and a warning to keep out of the Myrtle room. Mrs Jazeph is dismissed and flees to Truro to visit her uncle, Joseph Buschmann. He is delighted to see his niece, in reality Sarah Leeson, after an interval of many years.
Uncle Joseph, a passionate lover of Mozart which he plays incessantly on his musical box, plans to help Sarah recover the secret paper from Porthgenna. They gain entrance to the house but before Sarah can reach the letter she faints, terrified by mistaking the wind for a ghost. Sarah leaves Porthgenna and to avoid any further questions loses herself in the anonymity of London. Treverton refuses to help but Shrowl sells a copy of the plans and the Dead Secret is revealed.
The Dead Secret sur Apple Books
Rosamond is really the illegitimate daughter of Sarah Leeson whose lover, Hugh Polwheal, was killed in a mining accident before they could marry. The childless Mrs Treverton passed off Rosamond as her own, both to preserve the love of her husband and to save Sarah's reputation. Andrew Treverton, staggered at finding two people who don't care about money, forces them to take it back.
Uncle Joseph has meanwhile traced Sarah so that mother and daughter are reunited. The frail Sarah dies happy in Rosamond's arms, at peace because the ghost which perpetually haunted her has finally disappeared.
