The Keys of the Kingdom is the unforgettable story of the Reverend Francis Chisholm and his fight against the snares of the world he has given up . . . his forbidden attraction to women . . . his struggle with his superiors… One of Cronin’s most famous characters, he strives for humility and strength to follow the path he sees as the true one for himself and the Church. From the pen of the author of The Citadel, Hatter’s Castle, The Stars Look Down, Shannon’s Way and The Spanish Gardener comes this compelling tale of an ordinary man of the people.
