"RARE OBJECTS  is a delicious novel by the imaginative and deft Kathleen Tessaro, who creates unforgettable worlds, and within them, compelling characters who stay with the reader long after she reaches the end. Maeve Fanning is resourceful, loaded with ambition and pluck, but also burdened with an insatiable appetite for more, whether it's romance, booze or the beautiful things a life of luxury provides. This novel turns like the delicate ballerina on a music box, rich in detail, you can't take your eyes off of her, and like Maeve, you shouldn't, as there is much to savor in the dance."

—Adriana Trigiani, New York Times bestselling author of All the Stars in the Heavens


“…Tessaro’s complicated heroines—and the shattering reveal of secret after secret—will keep readers guessing until the final page.”

—Publishers Weekly


“Set in Depression-era Boston, Kathleen Tessaro’s lovely novel about prized possessions, slick façades, broken lives, and a young woman with a past is a treasure!”

—Stephanie Lehmann, author of Astor Place Vintage


"A beautifully written, thoroughly absorbing novel, full of rich historical detail and intriguing characters. A delight from start to end."

—Hazel Gaynor, New York Times bestselling author of The Girl Who Came Home
