A Cry From Egypt by Hope Auer


Jarah was a slave in Egypt. It was a dangerous place to be. Her work was exhausting and her family was torn between the gods of the Egyptians and the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. And her brother… would his Ada be given in marriage to an Egyptian in the palace? Would they ever be free?

Have you ever wondered what life was like in ancient Egypt? As an Israelite? And a slave? Want your children to understand the Bible is history?

Published by Hal and Melanie Young at Great Waters Press, and written by Hope Auer, a homeschool graduate.

“Fast paced, Biblically and historically accurate, great fun!” – Hal & Melanie Young of Raising Real Men.
