Three sentence book review: Cry, The Beloved Country - Alan Paton

In our continued quest to clean our bookshelves, I reread this favorite before donating it to the local library. It's a beautiful story, set in South Africa, about the darkness and light that makes up life. And since I made the three sentence rule, I also get to make the rule that says I get to use my last sentence to list a few of my favorite quotes from this amazing book:

  • "The tragedy is not that things are broken. The tragedy is that they are not mended again."
  • "It is life you are going into, you are not afraid because you do not know."
  • "I have learned that kindness and love can pay for pain and suffering."
