"The Touchstone is without doubt expertly written, and it contains a number of the
beautifully articulated insights into the ambiguities of the moral life at which Edith Wharton was becoming
a master."R. W. B. Lewis, biographer

This spare, mesmerizing novel is Edith Wharton's money-can't-buy-happiness tale. Young Stephen Glennard,
a lawyer, is poor, but he has an unanticipated gambling chip: a collection of love letters from a scorned, but
now famous, lover, the distinguished novelist Margaret Aubyn. To raise money for his forthcoming wedding to
another woman, Stephen stoops to sell the letters. His decision brings him wealth and admission to society,
but a mystery contained in the missives comes back to haunt him, and it may take a madness of guilt to
remind Stephen that he does, after all, have a conscience.

Betrayal, greed, and consequences faced make this sly, masterful story a deft social and psychological portrait
to stand with Wharton's best.

Have you always loved reading but sometimes find it hard to find the time? Thereís nothing quite like curling up with a good book but many of us canít do that as much as weíd like. We sacrifice this special time because we have so many other things to do each day. Itís a common problem and itís the reason why people on average are not reading as much as they once did. Audio books bring the story to life just as the storytellers of the past did. They allow you to experience the book in a whole new way; in the way the writer felt and heard it in their head. You can feel the emotion when you allow audio books to let the story come to life.
