The stunning new novel from the New York Times bestselling author of The Perfume Collector.
Mae Fanning overcomes a scandalous past to secure a job as a sales girl in a tiny antiques shop in Boston. It is her passport to a better life than the one she leads with her widowed mother, and introduces her to ideas, beautiful objects and history she has never before encountered.
But it also introduces her to the dangerously brittle Van der Laar siblings, Diana and James. For Mae, reputation and her job are all - yet like a moth to a flame she keeps being drawn back to the fatally fascinating pair.
Beautiful, bright Mae finds herself pretending to be something she isn't - but at what cost? Weaving in history and myth through the antiques shop, Rare Objects illuminates the glittering, dangerous fascination of the Prohibition era for a girl who dreams of a bigger life.
