Loving Frank by Nancy Horan


People from Wisconsin, and especially those from Spring Green, or those who have visited, may find reading about the area and Frank Lloyd Wright's personal life from Mamah's perspective quite interesting. This book is fiction, but I believe historically correct. I enjoyed it and suggest it as a book club discussion novel.

I had only a vague idea of who Mamah Cheney was, and knew even less about her life works and what happened at the end of her life. So as she describes her clandestine love affair with Frank Lloyd Wright, while Horan weaves little-known facts into a compelling narrative, I vividly saw the conflicts of a woman needing to choose between the roles of mother, wife, lover, and intellectual. Mamah’s is a remarkable journey that leads ultimately to a very stunning conclusion. Check catalog for availability.
