This biography of Sara Smith, who, along with her husband Melvyn, created the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Smith House, tells the remarkable story of determination, sacrifice, and joy of building a home and raising a family in a unique work of art.

It traces Sara Smith’s childhood in Pennsylvania and Detroit, her courtship with Melvyn, and the process of commissioning and constructing the Wright house. This biography was commissioned and self-published by the Smith’s son, Robert Smith, in 1999.
