"Cry, the Beloved Country" by Alan Paton. A Very Short Review.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
"Cry, the Beloved Country" is a sad story, a tale of brokenness, despair, fear, shame, and betrayal; but a tale holding surprising redemptions! The depth of the narrative as it chronicles a father's increasing loss of faith and heart-wrenching discoveries, along with genuine friendships and kindnesses coming out of unlooked for places and given with no sense of entitlement or repayment, touches the heart and warms the soul. It is a steady story that winds downward and then rises up in dawning hope. "Cry, the Beloved Country" is worth the read, and will rouse reflection for many days. Grab a copy, and read it as soon as you can!
