Loving Frank, by Nancy Horan

This book is a fictional account of the true affair between Frank Lloyd Wright and Mamah Borthwick. While elements of this book become a little too romantic/chick-lit, the overall story is incredibly interesting. Mamah explores ideas of loyalty, women’s rights and personal identity, as she struggles to balance her life and her love. While you sometimes want to shake her out of her obsession with Wright, her character portrays the struggles women faced–and still face–as they deal with identity within relationships, personal goals and family responsibility. I found this book to be good, if not great, and I now want to read nonfiction about Wright and Borthwick.
