    2. A really enjoyable historical fiction novel set in the bustling diverse community of Boston in the 1930 s What I liked primarily about this novel is the author chose to feature her protagonist as someone who is, in a sense, completely ahead of her time Straggling the line between social and cultural norms whilst trying to maintain some independence, I enjoyed May s reluctance to conform to what is expected of her She is a flawed character trying to starve off the skeletons in her closet, but thi [...]

    3. Rare Objects is a historical fiction novel set in post depression Boston The reader is introduced to two main characters Maeve May , a young Irish woman living at home who is frustrated and desperate with her station in life and Diana Van dear Laar, a deeply flawed, smart, rich young lady Their lives become intertwined, resulting in a beautifully written, insightful, thought provoking novel Some favourite quotes to ponder Sometimes, my dear, being broken is the most interesting thing that can ha [...]

    4. I absolutely adored this book It s set in the 1930s a great time for historical fiction, I think and it s insanely well written I had such a sense of unease while reading it I didn t know what would go wrong, but I was sure that something horrible would happen to Mae or to Diana or to both I loved the two of them so much that I was so afraid that things would go wrong for them And in the 1930s, there are so many ways that things could go wrong for women especially single women I don t want to sa [...]

    5. Another Battle of the Books Tournament book this one written by a Pittsburgh author, though the story takes place in Boston and, briefly, NYC that I was unfamiliar with originally The author s name is familiar to me, though I don t know if she is actually related to the Tessaro family of the delicious Tessaro s in Bloomfield.1930s Boston Maeve Fanning has had a rough time of things, most of which we learn about through flashbacks that don t really go much further than that She has had a stint in [...]

    6. There are books that I can only describe as being literary Chinese food, I enjoy the book while I read it at times I can t even put it down but, once I m done, I just don t feel satisfied There is a lot in Rare Objects to recommend it, but I just didn t feel that it came together at the end.The novel has a promising start our heroine finds herself in a mental hospital, where she meets Diana, a mysterious but fragile woman We are quickly brought back to 1930 s Boston, where the bulk of the action [...]

    7. Rare Objects is set in Depression era Boston and follows Maeve Fanning, a first generation Irish woman, living with her widowed mother Maeve makes some wrong choices and lands in a psychiatric hospital, like so many misunderstood women of that time In the hospital she strikes up a friendship with Diana, who is from a wealthy Boston family, and their friendship continues outside of the hospital Maeve gets sucked into Diana s web and both women feed off of each other as they try to push the bounda [...]

    8. A solid 3.75 I really enjoyed this one Set in Depression Era Boston, Maeve Fanning is cunning, smart, and totally adrift She finds herself working in an antique shop, and immersed both in the lives and inner workings of that business, as much as entangled with the Van De Leer family, enigmatic, mysterious, a glamorous world of half truths One of the themes in the novel, was that you become the story you tell Selling rare objects is about the story of where things came from, broken, old, lost and [...]

    9. Fine my full review at aliteraryvacation.Depression era United States isn t a place and time I ve read much about but, after reading Rare Objects, I m starting to think that s been a mistake Given this story s subject matter, the contrast between the poor, crowded, down on their luck immigrant communities like the one Maeve grew up in and the rich, opulent, and wanton world she becomes enmeshed in while working in the antiques store, is glaringly clear and that much poignant for it Whether this [...]

    10. Maeve is an Irish girl from Boston who runs away to NYC for reasons best known to herself but which we can easily guess In NYC, she develops alcoholism She was already susceptible to alcohol in Boston, but at least she had a mother to look after her Not that she did much No such thing in NYC, and one thing leads to another and she finds herself in a facility for the mentally challenged There she meets a girl, clearly privileged, exchanges a couple of conversations, is released and comes home to [...]

    11. Favorite Quotes It s a trick I learned from my mother when in doubt, act like you know what you re doing, and you ll be treated like you do And if you can convince others, there s a chance that someday you might just be able to convince yourself I used to wonder what it felt like to waste something as a child I couldn t imagine anything delicious or sinful than the extravagance of throwing things away I ve wasted a few things since then it s not as liberating as I imagined Almost everywhere els [...]

    12. I can t recall where the recommendation for this book came from I really need to take note of that so I won t waste my time in the future The Boston locale, premise to reinvent oneself, antiquitiesl had potential, but the narrative did not resonate with me.

    13. I tremendously enjoyed reading this book At first it s just an interesting read about a lost girl falling down the rabbit hole of bad decisions, unable to understand how things have turned so wrong, so quickly However, as she desperately fights to make something worthwhile of her life, she makes an unlikely friend in Diana The two alternately work to bring each other down, then to lift each other up They are both a matched pair of likable but desperate girls fragile and infinitely breakable Made [...]

    14. I enjoyed every bit of this book From the cover to the characters and lastly and most importantly the story I was not a complete fan of the ending though Only because I didn t want it to end I wanted to know about Several characters and where they ended up With that being said it lets me hold out hope that this one could be a series There were certain things in the story I wanted to read of More than one character felt open ended Not really a cliff hanger the author addressed everyone in the e [...]

    15. Sometimes, being broken is the most interesting thing to happen.Set in Boston in the early thirties, it charts the friendship between two young women, Diana wealthy and privileged, and Maeve from an impoverished single parent family who meet at an asylum after failed suicide attempts Maeve is drawn to unsuitable men, but managed to secure a job as sales assistant at an antique and curio shop co owned by Mr Kessler, the business partner, and archaeologist Mr Winshaw who sources objects from aroun [...]

    16. I am not even sure how I found this book perhaps the cover caught my eye I went into with no expectations and no previous experience of this author and was really blown away There is a LOT going on here, in a good way Set in 1930s Boston, we manage to cover various immigrant waves entering the city, class issues, mental illness, and some really good character development Oh, and antiques which I enjoyed WAY than I thought I was going to The book summary gives a good idea of the general set up, [...]

    24. FTC Disclosure I received an ARC of this book from the publisher via TLC Book Tours in exchange for a fair and honest review Opinions expressed are mine Rare Objects is the story of Maeve Fanning, a young woman on a journey of self discovery All too often, Maeve s journey leads her in the wrong direction.Kathleen Tessaro is an extraordinary writer, and having read her earlier work, The Perfume Collector, I wanted to take part in this tour and review Rare Objects Her characters are strongly drawn [...]

    25. Kathleen Tessaro can tell a story like no one else She not only tells you the story but you come to know the characters so personally This story takes place in Boston during a time when your heritage Irish, Jewish, Italian, etc was considered a detriment to those who ruled society in the case of this book it is the Van Der Laars and their South African family with questionably corrupt dealings in the diamond industry of South Africa Maeve is a young Irish American girl who grows up with her moth [...]

    26. This book cemented Kathleen Tessaro as one of my favorite authors.Just like The Perfume Collector, Rare Objects follows the life of a young woman wrapped up in a world of extravagance Meave befriends an equally destructive girl named Diana Van der Laar, meeting her at an asylum and later when delivering an antique package to her mother Tessaro s writing is as beautiful as ever, weaving an emotional tale of a girl caught between identities, and who she wants to be and who she is Other books like [...]

    27. Rare Objects is one of those books where strongly drawn characters nestled in my mind for awhile but I m sad to say the surrounding story faded from memory very quickly though In the beginning I had a completely different opinion about the story and I couldn t walk too far from my kindle before I would find the time to come right back for of the atmosphere, easily readable narration and a plot that excited my imagination with various displayed key interests Unfortunately after the initial intro [...]
