Cry, the Beloved Country

Cry, the Beloved Country - Alan Paton An award winning classic about Stephen Kumalu, a Zulu pastor, whose son accidentally murders a white man in South Africa. This book beautifully describes the agony of the racial tension in South Africa and the sad lives of the rural people as they try to maintain their lives under European rule. The audio narration was PERFECT. Frederick Davidson was the narrator. In the past, I have disliked his voice as being too stuffy and 'British'. His African accents for this book were amazing. He performed a wide variety of distinct voices for the dcharacters. Beautifully written prose and beautifully read.
