I want to thank Alan Paton for Cry the Beloved Country. First read when I was 17 and annually since for 40 years. The dignity of the language and the heart searching subject matter has always touched my soul. Paton uses language to convey a period in history which was challenging and brutal yet embodies the absolute goodness of human nature with all its flaws. He has incredible insight into what makes us human and the characters shine out as real people we recognise I read the book every year and every year I take something new away from the experience. Even though I know how the book ends, it never fails to make me cry.
