Journal Entry 2 by Shahrun from Dagenham, Essex United Kingdom on Monday, November 09, 2009
This book, although fiction, is based on actual peoples lives and has been very well researched (in my opinion), not just about the people concerned, but the period of time the book is set it. I really enjoyed it because it broadned my knowledge on Women's Sufferage (and made me want to know more). Also, made me realise how golbal the whole movement was. It's very sad that when taught history, we are only taught it's relivance to the country you are in, but not also in relation to global events. Am I even making sence now? Moving swiftly one. The ending almost had me in tears (as I was at work, in a room of cavemen - who were, fortunatly for me engrossed in football - I got it under control). The book built up into that aweful climax, well. Not too sure what the fate of this book will be. I think I may free it.

It's arrived already! I'm really looking forward to it, thanks Shahrun

Journal Entry 6 by jaynereader from Sheffield, South Yorkshire United Kingdom on Saturday, March 06, 2010
Thanks Shahrun for sharing, it's reawakened my interest in FLW so I've been looking at his buildings on the internet. I like the fact she wrote the main characters as flawed but their story was a bit episodic (America, then Germany, then Italy, then Japan...) and towards the end right before the tragedy it lost momentum and was drifting. A page-turner and quite entertaining even so.
Perryfran has asked to be skipped so I've pmed RaggedWood and am waiting for a reply.

RaggedWood is not replying to PMs so this is off to valpete tomorrow

Journal Entry 8 by wingvalpetewing from Walnut Creek, California USA on Monday, March 22, 2010
I'm reading "The Women" right now about the loves of FLW, written by T. C. Boyle, an excellent book. It will be a while before I get to this one, since I have a few ahead of it. Thanks for your patience.

I've finished this book and will be putting it in the mail for PerryFran very soon. Well written historical fiction vividly portrays Frank Lloyd Wright's relationship with his lover. She was a motivating character in his life until her tragic end. Good reading!!

Journal Entry 10 by wingperryfranwing at Rockville, Maryland USA on Monday, June 14, 2010
Received in the mail today. Will try to read ASAP. Thanks for including me in this ring!

12/21/10: Another interesting perspective on the Loves of Frank Lloyd Wright. I recently read T.C. Boyle's "The Women" which is a novelization of all of the women in Wright's life. This one focuses on Mamah Cheney - a very tragic character. I wonder if it was coincidence that Boyle's novel came out so closely after "Loving Frank." Anyway, they were both pretty good reads.

I will be passing this one on to ciloma to continue this ray.

Received in the mail today. Look forward to reading it.

Journal Entry 13 by ciloma at Spirit Lake, Idaho USA on Friday, February 25, 2011
Well - I think I have learned some things about FLW that I would rather not have learned... I have always admired his architecture and design (and will continue to do so.) I never knew much about his personal life - I guess I figured he was too busy designing to have one. I enjoyed the novel - even more so knowing that the author made all attempts to be true to the true story. It was well written and carried me along with the story as well as many emotions that the characters were feeling.

I have found the next reader for it and hope to send it next week sometime.
