By: Edith Wharton
This is Wharton's first novella, written at a time when she was still developing her craft as a writer; the story can appear woefully underwritten. Still, the story is mesmerizing and dangerous, a Faustian tale of betrayal, greed and the consequences paid, and the more often you read through it, the more hidden meanings emerge. When you read it, think of the lover who sold Princess Diana's first secrets of their affair to the tabloids, and the consequences since. What ever happened to that man? Perhaps, like Stephen Glennard in 'The Touchstone', he has gone mad from guilt, which, ironically enough, might prove he has a conscious after all.
Sometimes you have to blow your own horn. I not only publish books but I write them.
These three books are not found on this web site but on Amazon - because I am
selling them for Kindle and in a paperback format
to help provide income in my retirement.

This web site is dedicated to Mr. Maltie Sassaman, my fourth grade teacher. When I entered his class I could not read. When I left his class at the end of the school year I was reading at a sixth grade level and I haven't stopped reading since. Were it not for Mr. Sassaman, this page would not exist.
