Frances Parkinson Keyes

Collection of 21 Vintage paperbacks by Frances Parkinson Keyes

HUGE COLLECTION OF FRANCES PARKINSON KEYES

One of the most popular authors of her day (mostly 1930s-1960s), Keyes wrote a variety of epic novels, romances (historical and contemporary), and family dramas. The wife of a high-ranking politician, Keyes’ novels are often filled with aristocrats & upper class families.

She was also a convert to Catholicism, and her evolving Catholic faith can be traced through her books. Some of the themes & characters in her early novels are not exactly politically correct, so be prepared!

This is a collection of vintage paperbacks, mostly printed in the 1950s through 1970s.
