The book started out ok and I stuck with it for over 100 pages. But I could just not get into the story. I felt I could tell what the author was trying to do and the portrait she wanted to create of Mamah but it was not working for me. My favorite part was right at the beginning when a Frank Lloyd Wright house is described as compared to the current trends. The clean lines sounded so calm and neat. The book was not strong and I did not feel like sticking it out to the end.
