The secret of the title is the parentage of the heroine, Rosamund Treverton, who has been passed off as the daughter of the wealthy former actress Mrs. Treverton of Porthgenna Tower, but is in fact the illegitimate child of her servant Sarah Leeson by a local miner. Sarah writes down the details of the secret from the words of the dying Mrs. Treverton, and hides the paper bearing the message in an unused room at Porthgenna. The novel then jumps forward some twenty years. Rosamund has married the blind Leonard Frankland, who now owns Porthgenna Tower. Sarah, under an assumed name, obtains a post as servant to the family, and gives Rosamund a cryptic warning to avoid the room in which the Secret is hidden. On a visit to Porthgenna, Rosamund finds the paper detailing the Secret and reveals it to Leonard. Leonard, who was originally deceived into thinking Rosamund was a wealthy heiress, accepts that his wife is illegitimate, but refuses to accept her inheritance. In the course of things, this would now pass to Mrs. Treverton’s miserly brother Andrew. But Andrew Treverton, somewhat out of character, refuses to accept the windfall and Rosamund remains the heiress of the Trevertons in the expected happy ending.

Marquis de Sade - Les crimes de l'amour artwork Les crimes de l'amour
Marquis de Sade
Genre: Crime & Thrillers
Publish Date: 01 December 1814
Publisher: Public Domain
Seller: Public Domain

Le trop célèbre de Sade, premier marquis de France et issu d'une des plus anciennes maisons nobles de l'Europe, est universellement connu pour ses débauches. Tout le monde lettré a entendu parler plus ou moins de ses écrits, mais peu de personnes les connaissent. Cette grande célébrité le fait rechercher dans les bibliothèques, où il a sa place marquée comme originalité; mais ses écrits le rendent presque impossible, car le triste sire n'avait guère d'autre esprit que la monomanie érotico-criminelle. Justine et Juliette, la Philosophie dans le boudoir, Aline et Valcourt, sont des œuvres souillées d'images obscènes et meurtrières, qui répugnent tellement à la lecture que, peut-être, personne ne les a lues en entier. Le style en est détestable, car si l'auteur était fou, il n'était pas littéraire. Zoloé, l'Auteur des Crimes de l'Amour à Villeterque, les Crimes de l'Amour, et autres productions analogues ne sont que de plates satires, ou de mauvaises nouvelles, sans intérêt. En publiant ici une Nouvelle tirée des Crimes de l'Amour, le pamphlet contre Villeterque, l'Étude sur les romans, et la Notice sur Sade et ses écrits, les bibliophiles ont l'avantage d'avoir un spécimen des ouvrages de cet érotomane, et ils peuvent ainsi se dispenser d'acquérir ses autres œuvres.

The woman removed her veil, and indeed she did have two ghastly looking scars, but she had exaggerated her disfigurement, for despite the scars hers was not an uncomely face to look upon. Her eyes were beautiful, and the detective was led to say with chivalrous truth and gallantry. The woman's voice was very musical; she spoke in low tones and her pronunciation and general demeanor betrayed the fact that gentle blood ran in her veins.
