The Patty Pick for 3/6/14 is "Loving Frank" by Nancy Horan


"Loving Frank" by Nancy Horan is a book that will change your view 
of famous architect, Frank Lloyd Wright. He always seemed a distant, 
historical figure to me that gave us wonderful architecture to treasure. 
After you read this book, you will think of him as a person and you will know 
the woman who made a huge difference in his life. 
This book is a love story above all. Mameh Borthwick Cheney is someone 
I had never heard of, but you will know her intimately after reading this book. 
Nancy Horan wove facts and research into a love story of these two real people that you don't want to miss. 
Mameh Cheney and her husband hired Frank Lloyd Wright to design a 
new home for them and their family. This started Memeh and Frank 
on a long relationship that concludes after much adventure and history. 
Their affair happened during a time in history that such things were not 
tolerated by society in most places in the world but they found a way to 
make it work. The story will keep you interested during the entire book and 
you will never think about Frank Lloyd Wright the same way again.
