A Cry from Egypt by Hope Auer (Great Waters Press)

In this freshmen outing for Hope Auer, I was intrigued to read about a fictional family who lived during the oppression of the Israelites by the Egyptians. The story of Moses leading the Israelites to the Promised Land is a well-known Bible story. In A Cry from Egypt, Hope writes about a family who lived in Egypt at the time that Moses first returned to ask Pharoah to release the Israelites. This type of historical fiction brings a Bible story to life for me. I was immersed in the family struggles and triumphs. The family is spared during the plagues, like the other Israelites, and the lead character learns of the all-powerful God her family serves as they are delivered from the bondage of slavery.

I would recommend this book for anyone 13 and older. Some of the scenes described may be difficult for younger readers.
