  • I’ve always been a prolific reader. Since I was a small child armed with Dick and Jane books, the phrase Get Your Nose Out of That Book! Has echoed around our house. When I went to highschool, I ramped up the reading – both required books and my new-found love of historical romance. Rosemary Rogers, Shirlee Busbee, Bertrice Small. And then I read the Flame and the Flower by Kathleen Woodiwiss, and reading romance was never the same again.

    I haven’t read it for years, but “The Flame And the Flower” holds a permanent spot as my favorite romance novel ever. Of course, my attitude about these things is a little different.

  • Ms Woodiwiss wrote The Wolf and The Dove, a romance that was set during the Norman invasion, and it far surpasses the writing in The Flame and The Flower. The history was more authentic, I think, and the emotions truer, the romance more romantic.

    Her revolutionary debut novel, The Flame and the Flower, was rejected by agents and hardcover publishers alike for being too long – and at 600 pages, it put the smaller historicals that were popular to date to shame. Woodiwiss then submitted it to Avon, who purchased the novel in paperback. It sold over 2.3 million copies in its first four years. Way to go!

    @Susan, I also still have all my original Woodiwiss books. My The Flame and the Flower and The Wolf and the Dove are all title with little bitty, yet really detailed illustrations at the bottom. They both beat the hell out of the reissues I’ve seen. I wish I had the technology, I’d send you a picture of the cover. And I just looked at the publication page. 1974. YIKES! I’ve had this book for 40 years!!

Ruth Harris alluded to an editor at Avon—the one who picked “The Flame and the Flower” out of her slush pile in the early 1970s, then made publishing history. For the record, her name is Nancy Coffey. Nowadays she runs a literary agency.
