Cry, the Beloved Country (Barron's Book Notes) by Alan Paton, Rose Sallberg Kam

Cry, the Beloved Country is a beautifully told and
profoundly compassionate story of the Zulu pastor
Stephen Kumalo and his son Absalom, set in the
troubled and changing South Africa of the 1940s.

The book is written with such keen empathy and
understanding that to read it is to share fully in the
gravity of the characters' situations. It both touches
your heart deeply and inspires a renewed faith in
the dignity of mankind. Cry, the Beloved Country is
a classic tale, passionately African, timeless and
universal, and beyond all, selfless.
