A Cry From Egypt (The Promised Land) (Volume 1)

by Hope Auer Author

(From Amazon): “I seriously have no words that can properly explain everything awesome about this book.” – Dawn Winters from -Dawn Winters from Guiding Light Homeschool Blog “After reading the first chapter with the children, I snuck off to read more. I stayed up late to finish it. That’s how drawn into Jarah’s world I was.” – Linda B at Homeschooling 6 “I have worked as a writing teacher and editor for for my entire adult life. I have read more stories from young authors than I can count, but Hope’s work is the first to make me think of JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis, and Frank Perretti when I read it. ” – Patsy Brekke at Writing Foundations “One of the things I enjoyed most about this book as a parent was that Hope did an excellent job of focusing on her story, while staying true to the Biblical account of the plagues in Egypt. She allowed the Bible to speak for itself with the details she presented, neither adding nor subtracting from it.” – Michele P from Family, Faith, and Fridays “Fast paced, Biblically and historically accurate, great fun!” – Hal & Melanie Young, authors of Raising Real Men, 2011 CSPA Book of the Year Know what’s even better? Hope is a recent homeschool graduate herself – and so is the illustrator, Mike Slaton! She actually came up with the idea when her family was studying ancient Egypt.
