It was similar to Loving Frank because Horan brought a real person to life. It reads like a novel, but it is very interesting to read about the history of Robert Louis Stevenson (in this book) and Frank Lloyd Wright in Loving Frank. Of course, I think Horan says that it is a somewhat factionalized account... They are both excellent listens!
Yes, good story that weaves its way toward satisfying answers near the end. Good character development. The story made me eager to understand more about the characters, and their lives unfolded as I listened.
It was a little like the style of Geraldine Brooks' "People of the Book" because it told the story of three women from three different times in history. Their lives were woven together, even though they were from different periods.
Her performance kept my attention on the story instead of on her performance. She did an excellent job of story-telling.
It was a good solid read --- I enjoyed it. Our book club read it and we had a good discussion. The discussion was not as lively as it was with our very best "reads," but we all enjoyed it and were glad we had read it.
