"In her new novel, Nancy Horan has recreated a love story that is as unique, passionate, and overwhelmingly powerful as the one between Frank Lloyd Wright and Mamah Cheney depicted so memorably in Loving Frank. Under the Wide and Starry Sky chronicles the unconventional love affair of Scottish literary giant Robert Louis Stevenson, author of classics including Treasure Island and The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and American divorcee Fanny Van de Grift Osbourne. They meet in rural France in 1875, when Fanny, having run away from her philandering husband back in California, takes refuge there with her children. Stevenson too is escaping from his life, running from family pressure to become a lawyer. And so begins a turbulent love affair that will last two decades and span the world.

Loving Frank playaway : a novel by Nancy Horan( Recording )

in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This fictionalization of the life of Mamah Borthwick Cheney, best known as the woman who wrecked Frank Lloyd Wright's first marriage, is a portrayal of an independent, educated woman at odds with the restrictions of the early 20th century. Frank and Mamah, both married and with children, met when Mamah's husband, Edwin, commissioned Frank to design a house. Their affair became the stuff of headlines when they left their families to live and travel together, going first to Germany, where Mamah found rewarding work doing scholarly translations of Swedish feminist Ellen Key's books. Frank and Mamah eventually settled in Wisconsin, where they were hounded by a scandal-hungry press, with tragic repercussions

Nancy Horan: Under the wide and starry sky by Nancy Horan( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Former journalist Nancy Horan writes ambitious fictionalizations of people known only from the pages of history. In her first novel, Loving Frank, she draws Frank Lloyd Wright and his mistress Mamah Borthwick Cheney forth from time's hazy confines, telling the story of their long-lived but ultimately tragic affair. From the little-known Borthwick she created an "enigmatic Everywoman--a symbol of both the freedoms women yearn to have and of the consequences that may await when they try to take them" (The New York Times Book Review). Horan's new novel similarly delves into "the opportunities and repercussions of individuals living outside of society's mores" (Bookmarks Magazine) as it explores the real-life relationship between famed Scottish writer Robert Louis Stevenson and a free-spirited American woman who left her husband and set sail for Belgium

-- "A transforming drama ... truly artful fiction."? -- "A beautifully orchestrated rendering of the affair and the inner lives of two love-torn principals. Understated yet dramatic, painstaking and convincing, this is fiction with the heft of truth."? "In Mamah, Horan creates an unforgettably complex heroine."?"A staggering read, a complex tale of the love affair between two eccentric, intelligent and unforgettable characters. Though it is very much a literary novel, sparks fly off the page."?Rocky Mountain News
