The Objects of Her Affection

(2014)
A novel by

 

"A tautly plotted and elegantly written debut... about the shame of I held my breath with every twist and turn."
Kelly Simmons


"'Similarly thrilling' to Gone Girl...Smart social commentary meets taut heist when mom Sophie dips her toe into the black market art world, just so her family can have a nice home." - Better Homes & Garden

Her Heists Paid the Bills.
Her Family Paid the Price.


Sophie Porter is the last person in the world you'd expect to be stealing Renaissance masterpieces - and that's exactly why she's so good at it. Slipping objects out of her husband's office at the Philadelphia Museum of Art satisfies something deep inside, during a time in her life when satisfactions are few and far between.

Selling the treasures also happens to keep their house out of foreclosure - a house that means everything to Sophie. But the FBI is sniffing around, and Sophie is close to destroying the very life she's working so hard to build. She knows she should give up her thieving ways. But she may no longer be in control. The Objects of Her Affection is a riveting story about the realities of motherhood, the perils of secrecy, and the art of appraising the real treasures in our lives.

"Sonya Cobb combines the rarified atmosphere of museum scholarship, illegal art trafficking, and the sticky desperation of young motherhood to craft a superbly written thriller." - Karen Engelmann, author of The Stockholm Octavo

"This thrilling, emotional, and tautly paced novel will appeal to fans of The Book Thief...[Cobb's] brilliant first novel is the story of a woman with nothing and everything to lose." - Booklist, starred review
