Read full description of the books:
I was very disappointed by this book. In the past two years, Jason and I have toured two Frank Lloyd Wright homes and I took a modern architecture class in college that featured a ton of his work, so I thought I would enjoy a fictionalized glimpse of his personal life. I did enjoy reading about Taliesin and the Midway Gardens and how FLW incorporated thoughts from disparate cultures (Japanese, Italian, German) into his own creations.
What I didn't like was Mamah, who was unfortunately the main character of the book. Mamah Cheney was a client of FLW's and they had an affair that spanned several years. It didn't bother me to read about their affair (the book was fairly tame in that regard), but I did find it highly objectionable that Mamah felt in order to be herself as a woman, she needed to abandon her children and husband.
I detest the idea that being a strong woman means being selfish, which I felt was implied throughout this book by Mamah's thoughts and actions. Isn't it MORE difficult to fulfill your obligations than to do whatever you want? Doesn't it make you a stronger woman to be responsible instead of meeting only your own needs?
I would like to think I'm a strong woman (perhaps too strong sometimes?) and I hope my daughters and others will look back on my life as something of value because I worked to stay myself while still loving others deeply and putting those I love before my own wishes, hopes and desires. I guess I was left feeling that "Loving Frank" was not a worthwhile proposition if loving him meant giving up so much of what is really important.
