An ageing preacher, Reverend Kumalo, travels from a remote village to the metropolis of Johannesburg, to find his sister and his son. There, his world collapses as he slowly pieces together what has happened. However, there is hope even in despair – and the reverend understands what he must do to rebuild his family and community. This classic South African novel takes the reader on a journey into the past and into the lives of ordinary people who answered fear, anger and hopelessness with love, compassion and respect. It asks questions, suggests solutions and highlights issues that are relevant to all South Africans today. First published in 1948, it has sold over 15 million copies, and in 1960 the author, Alan Paton was awarded the Freedom Award for his role in countering the apartheid regime.
