A Cry From Egypt Giveaway!

Some of you may remember that I had the opportunity to review a new book called A Cry From Egypt, written by Hope Auer.  You can find my complete review here, but here is  a small excerpt from that review-

Geared for ages 8 and up, A Cry From Egypt follows a young slave in Egypt named Jarah. The story is set during the return of Moses to plead with Pharaoh to set God's people free. The plot takes many twists and turns throughout the story and kept us on the edge of our seat. There is adventure, romance and lots of biblical information sprinkled throughout. Like did you know that each of the 10 plagues were directly related to an Egyptian belief or superstition?
 
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. 

Hope's book is getting ready to be released this week and in celebration she has offered to give one of our readers an autographed copy.  Thanks Hope! 

For those of you with kiddos who are writing novels, this would be a great inspiration to them.  For others, it would be a fun read aloud.  For those History buffs in the mix,  it is a fun addition to your Ancient Egypt study.  The possibilities are endless!

  4. I asked the kiddos this question and JCL's immediate reply was,"The Death Angel! You girls wouldn't have had to worry about that one." As his Momma, I think that one would have been the worst too!
