Cry, The Beloved Country by Alan Paton

Cry, The Beloved Country

320 pages; Scribner/Simon & Schuster

The saga of Stephen Kumalo—his struggle as a father, as a reverend, as a brother and as a man—captures the very essence of South Africa in transition from a rural, tribal nation of spiritual heritage to a modern country of big cities, violence and upheaval. The pain of this transition is burned throughout part one of this novel. —Oprah
