Loving Frank: A Novel

The romantic relationship between Frank Lloyd Wright and Mamah Borthwick — following his design of her and husband Edwin Cheney’s home — changed the life of Wright, Borthwick, and their respective families. First time novelist Nancy Horan imagines the burgeoning relationship between the two; their flight to Europe and Mamah’s relationship to Swedish feminist, Ellen Key; the creation of Wright’s Wisconsin home, Taliesin for himself and Mamah; and her tragic end, all from Borthwick’s point of view. Loving Frank takes historical fact and creates a sensitive portrayal of a woman at the turn of the last century who made the decision to leave her husband and children for a brilliant artist, and the ultimate catastrophic consequences of that decision.
