Florence Morse Kingsley (July 14, 1859 – November 7, 1937) was an American author of popular and religious fiction.

Early life

Florence Morse Kingsley was born in Poe, Medina County, Ohio, to artists Eleanor Ecob[1] and Jonathan Bradley Morse.[2][3][4] Florence grew up in Brecksville Township, Ohio, where her parents were educators in the local school district.[5]

Personal life

Florence Morse was a student at Wellesley College from 1876 to 1879. However, she had to leave before graduating because of a severe eye problem.[6]

She married Reverend Charles Rawson Kingsley,[7][8] son of Frances Elizabeth Rawson and Charles Clark Kingsley on July 12, 1882 in Utica, New York. Dr. Charles and Mrs Florence Kingsley had five children: Charles Rawson Kingsley, Jr., Donald Morse Kingsley, Grace Ecob Kingsley, James Morse Kingsley, and John Bradley Kingsley.[9]

Professional life

Florence Morse Kingsley was a contemporary of fellow writer Lew Wallace, the author of Ben-Hur.[10] The influence of her early Wellesley days were captured in her books:[6]

  • The Hired Baby
  • And so They were Married
  • The Wounds of a Friend
  • The Princess and the Ploughman
  • To the Highest Bidder
  • The Singular Miss Smith

When Kingsley was thirty-five, a publisher held a writing competition to obtain the best manuscript that would inspire a child's faith for Christ. It was in this contest that Florence Kingsley submitted her manuscript for Titus: A Comrade of the Cross. In six weeks, 200,000 copies had been printed to meet demand. She later published two other works of Christian fiction: the sequel to her original entitled Stephen: A Soldier of the Cross, and the epic tale The Cross Triumphant.[10]

Kingsley was featured in, and a contributing writer to, the Ladies' Home Journal.[11][12]
