The Pink Camellia
Burning Beauty
Published:   1933
Publisher:Grosset & Dunlap
Tags:fiction, romance

All the anticipated ingredients of a new Temple Bailey, blended with her usual skill, for she can tell a story. The setting is post-boom Florida. The characters include three idealists, -- a young clergyman, the charming nurse whom he marries, and the disillusioned young doctor; two newcomers from Virginia, a father of heavy hand and light head, and a daughter, incredibly untouched by 20th century tendencies; and there is the villain, rank materialist, but charming and rich. A hurricane plays the part of deus ex machina at the end, and the intimation is that the good are rewarded and the evil punished (or at least removed from the scene of action).

Author Bio for Bailey, Temple

Author Image

Temple Bailey (1880-1953) was an American novelist and short story writer. Born in Virginia, she attended a girls' school for a time but poor health during her childhood meant that she was often tutored by her father at home. He paid close attention to her written English. As an adult, Bailey had no real desire to become an author but, "a season of stress and sorrow drove me to self-expression" and her 'scribbles' turned into stories that were soon being published in magazines such as the Ladies' Home Journal. Some of her stories were published as serials that were later turned into novels. Bailey preferred writing short stories thinking they were her most artistic work but found them harder to write than novels. She completed over 30 novels and her books sold in the millions. Bailey's style of featuring virginal heroines, conventional morality and happy ending seemed to fill her readers' needs for romance, the possibility of a better life and a happier world.
