Perhaps because I'd recently read T.C. Boyle's novelization of Wright's wrongs and romances, I wasn't as thrilled by this novel as I'd hoped I would be. Mamah Cheney is an interesting figure, almost as self absorbed as Wright but without his genius. good descriptions of houses and landscapes, less skillful ones of people. Horan tries to make it seem that Cheney left her husband for other reasons than a compelling love affair, but her other interests and pursuits are not as compelling. Even her love for Wright does not prevent her from spending long periods of time away from him without much constructive activity, just as her love for her children does not prevent her from abandoning them. Interesting evocation the period and places.
