Four and a half stars. This is a wonderful classic that everyone should read at some point- this is definitely writing at its best. Alan Paton beautifully describes the land of South Africa as well as letting us understand each character inside out.
We follow Stephen Kumalo, an old country parson, as he journeys to 1946 Johannesburg to find his sister and his son. His experience is tragic as well as eye-opening and insightful.
