Summary
From Scottish author A.J. Cronin comes a collection of some of his best-selling novels. The Citadel follows the life of Andrew Manson, a young and idealistic Scottish doctor, as he navigates the challenges of practicing medicine across interwar Wales and England. Based on Cronin's own experiences as a physician, The Citadel boldly confronts traditional medical ethics, and has been noted as one of the inspirations for the formation of the National Health Service. The Stars Look Down tells the story of a North Country mining community as its inhabitants make their way through the various social and political challenges of the early 20th century. Digging into workers rights, social change, and the relationship between labor and capitalism, the struggles of the novel's trifecta of protagonists politically minded miner David Fenwick, ambitious drifter Joe Gowlan, and frustrated yet meek mining-baron's son Arthur Barras remain compelling and relevant to readers in the 21st century. The Keys of the Kingdom tells the story of a man with great courage and conviction, a man unafraid to stand up for what is right. Francis Chisholm a kindhearted and straightforward Scottish priest walks a path all his own, making him unpopular with other members of the clergy. Ostracized by the clerical community and looked down on by his superiors, Chisholm takes a position in China where he supervises a mission beset by poverty, civil war, and plague. He encounters fierce resistance from the local Chinese who distrust his motives, especially as they do not understand or condone his faith. Despite enormous obstacles and temptations, Father Chisholm continues to live in accordance with what he holds as the ultimate truth serving humanity is the one true religion of the world
