Cry, the Beloved Country is set in the rural village of Ndotsheni, home of Stephen Kumalo, and in the city of Johannesburg. The contrast between village life and city life is among the novel’s key themes. The time is the mid-twentieth century, probably the same time as when the novel was written, 1945 to 1948.
