Loving Frank by Nancy Horan Summary Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Loving Frank


Adulterers can justify anything. At one point Mamah thinks she can make up for years of neglect by taking her kids on a vacation. At another point she thinks it will be great for the kids to have two sets of parents. She'll think whatever she wants to justify her infidelity and irresponsibility.


A fancy house can't substitute for love. Mamah agrees to return to Frank when he promises to build her a house. What does that have to do with anything? True love doesn't require a house; true love can happen anywhere, even in a rented apartment. But these two fools act like they can only achieve supreme happiness by living in a fancy house designed by Frank. It's their downfall, and shows they missed the important things--relationships, and their children.

Some women will put up with anything. What's amazing is that Frank's wife Catherine refused to get a divorce, even after Frank has been boning Mamah for years. She's really in love with him and ready to forgive almost anything.
