Really enjoyed this book! Wonderful insight into the private life of Frank Lloyd Wright and his relationship with Mamah Borthwick. Look forward to visiting Oak Park and Taliesin in the future.

Tria | 71 comments 22. The Other Queen-Philippa Gregory
I was looking forward to reading this book since the author's past books are well researched with great storylines and interesting characters. I thought the Other Queen was quite repetitive and the characters were very flat. I also didn't like that the story was told from three viewpoints.

Overall the book was ok--Philippa Gregory does great research and her books are always rich with historical information yet manage to be interesting. Looking forward to her next book and hoping its a page turner like her earlier books.
