Too late the phalarope by Alan Paton( Book )

107 editions published between 1947 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 3,119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of a young white South African police lieutenant, idolized in his Afrikaner community, who violates one of the strictest laws of that country governing the relationship between white and black. It is a portrayal of the desperate struggle within himself of a conscience-stricken man, a story told with almost unbearable suspense and bringing to life, in its unfolding, a whole family of unforgettable characters: Pieter the young police lieutenant himself; his old stern-faced Bible-reading patriarch of a father; and Pieter's Aunt Sophie, the loving woman who tells the story and through whose eyes we see Pieter as only the eyes of love could see him. Here is reaffirmation of the worth and dignity of man, a book the reading of which is a terrific but exalting experience. John Barkham, the noted reviewer, says, "Too Late the Phalarope is that rare and splendid thing: a second novel which is the equal of its unforgettable predecessor."--Adapted from jacket
