“A transforming drama . . . truly artful fiction.”—The New York Times

“I have been standing on the side of life, watching it float by. I want to swim in the river. I want to feel the current.” So writes Mamah Borthwick Cheney in her diary as she tries to justify her clandestine love affair with Frank Lloyd Wright. 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.

“A beautifully orchestrated rendering of the affair and the inner lives of two love-torn principals. Understated yet dramatic, painstaking and convincing, this is fiction with the heft of truth."—Seattle Post-Intelligencer

“In Mamah, Horan creates an unforgettably complex heroine.”—
The Washington Post

“A staggering read, a complex tale of the love affair between two eccentric, intelligent and unforgettable characters. Though it is very much a literary novel, sparks fly off the page.”—
Rocky Mountain News

About Nancy Horan

Nancy Horan’s first novel, Loving Frank, chronicles a little-known chapter in the life of American architect Frank Lloyd Wright. It was translated into sixteen languages, remained on the New York Times bestseller list for more than a year, and in 2009 was awarded the James Fenimore Cooper Prize for Best Historical Fiction, presented by the Society of American Historians. Under the Wide and Starry Sky explores the shared journey of Robert Louis Stevenson and his spirited American wife, Fanny, in a sweeping adventure that unfolds over eighteen years and three continents. Nancy Horan has two sons, and lives with her husband on an island in Puget Sound.

Praise

“Enthralling . . . Mamah Borthwick Cheney wasn’t just any woman, but Horan makes her into an enigmatic Everywoman—a symbol of both the freedoms women yearn to have and of the consequences that may await when they try to take them.”—The New York Times Book Review

“[A] thoughtful debut novel [that] pits morality against passion . . . the perfect selection to jump-start some satisfyingly heated arguments within your book club.”—USA Today

“The powerful writing imbues the tale with the terrible inevitability of a Greek tragedy.”—Chicago

“A fascinating love story enriched by important themes and spiced by a famous character.”—San Francisco Chronicle

Loving Frank reveals what we expect to get from great fiction: timeless truths about ourselves.”—New York Daily News
