The stunning new novel from the New York Times bestselling author of The Perfume Collector. 'Beautifully written...wonderfully absorbing with a clever twist in the tale' Isabel Wolff, author of Ghostwritten Mae Fanning seizes on a job at a tiny, exclusive Boston antiques shop as the fresh start she desperately needs.
It opens a window to new world, one peopled with rare and rich characters.
But the day that enigmatic socialite Diana van der Laar walks in, Mae's hidden past returns.
As a moth to a flame, Mae is unable to resist Diana's heady, seductive glamour and glittering life.
Yet, like the rare objects in the shop, very little is what it appears - Diana included.
Moving from Jazz-Age New York to Boston in the grip of the Great Depression, Rare Objects is a rich and gripping story of what it means to reach for a braver, bolder life.
