Loving Frank, by Nancy Horan

Loving FrankThis complex tale of the love affair between two eccentric, intelligent and unforgettable characters will provide a fascinating exploration of the illicit relationship between Frank Lloyd Wright and Mamah Borthwick Cheney. Though it is very much a literary novel, sparks fly off the page.   Four years earlier, in 1903, Mamah and her husband, Edwin, had commissioned the renowned architect to design a new home for them. During the construction of the house, a powerful attraction developed between Mamah and Frank, and in time the lovers, each married with children, embarked on a course that would shock Chicago society and forever change their lives.

What would lead two people to abandon their normal lives and enter into a relationship that would be condemning for both of them, once discovered?  What were the implications for the people around them who were affected by their choices?  What happened to both of them as a result of this choice?
