Florence Louisa Barclay (2 December 1862 – 10 March 1921) was an English romance novelist and short story writer.
Her novel, The Rosary, a story of undying love, was published in 1909 and its success eventually resulted in its being translated into eight languages and made into five motion pictures, also in several languages. According to the New York Times, the novel was the No.1 bestselling novel of 1910 in the United States. The enduring popularity of the book was such that more than twenty-five years later, Sunday Circle magazine serialized the story and in 1926 the prominent French playwright Alexandre Bisson adapted the book as a three-act play for the Parisian stage.
Her novel, The Mistress of Shenstone (1910), was made into a silent film of the same title in 1921.
