Drawing on years of research, Horan weaves ...

It's mesmerizing and fascinating'filled with complex characters, deep passions, tactile descriptions of astonishing architecture, and the colorful immediacy of daily life a hundred years ago'all gathered into a story that unfolds with riveting urgency." 'Lauren Belfer, author of City of Light "This graceful, assured first novel tells the remarkable story of the long-lived affair between Frank Lloyd Wright, a passionate and impossible figure, and Mamah Cheney, a married woman whom Wright beguiled and led beyond the restraint of convention. It is engrossing, provocative reading." ''Scott Turow "It takes great courage to write a novel about historical people, and in particular to give voice to someone as mythic as Frank Lloyd Wright. This beautifully written novel about Mamah Cheney and Frank Lloyd Wright's love affair is vivid and intelligent, unsentimental and compassionate." ''Jane Hamilton "I admire this novel, adore this novel, for so many reasons: The intelligence and lyricism of the prose. The attention to period detail. The epic proportions of this most fascinating love story. Mamah Cheney has been in my head and heart and soul since reading this book; I doubt she' ll ever leave." 'Elizabeth Berg."

  • "In the early 1900s polite Chicago society was rocked by scandal as renowned architect, Frank Lloyd Wright, ran off with Mamah Cheney, a client's wife. For the rest of her life Mamah paid an extraordinary price for moving outside society's rules, in a time that was unforgiving of a woman's quest for fulfilment and personal happiness."
  • "Frank Lloyd Wright and Mamah Borthwick Cheney fall in love, abandon their spouses and children in Chicago, and run away to Europe in 1909. Their five years together are marked by Mamah's feminist ambitions, her conflicting emotions, and the tragic, unforeseen end of their relationship."
