Loving Frank by Nancy Horan

One of my book clubs has just selected Loving Frank by Nancy Horan as our next selection. 

I first heard about this from a New York Times article titled “Notes on a Scandal” by Liesl Schillinger published September 27, 2007. This historical novel sounded intriguing then and I’m happy to have an excuse to read it.

Loving Frank is a novel about Frank Lloyd Wright and Mamah Borthwick Cheney — an educated woman who scandalized Chicago when she left her husband and two young children to flee to Europe with Wright (who left behind a wife and six children of his own).  Their love affair, in the early years of the 20th century, was a scandal in Chicago society and beyond, wherever Wright’s name was known.
