Stephen Glennard, a young lawyer, sells a package of love letters written to him over the years by distinguished novelist Margaret Aubyn, to raise money to pay for a forthcoming wedding to another woman. After the wedding, his secret comes back to haunt him and, when he confesses to his wife, their marriage is reduced to resigned coexistence.

"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
