Reviews for Loving Frank


AudioFile Reviews 2008 April/May
This charming blend of fact and fiction is based upon Mamah Borthwick Cheney's affair with renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Exploring the relationship from Cheney's perspective, Horan's novel focuses on the challenges she faces as she tries to balance the affair with her roles as mother and spouse. The story is at times gentle, at times stunning, but always captivating. Joyce Bean narrates with a grace and style that enhance the book, presenting listeners with a glimpse into the events and emotions that rocked Chicago society at the turn of the twentieth century. Using a calm yet intense tone, Bean captures Cheney's emotional struggle to justify her clandestine relationship and highlights her ability to profoundly influence the idiosyncratic Wright. D.J.S.
