A Cry from Egypt

A Cry From Egypt was written by Hope Auer and illustrated by Mike Slaton, both recent homeschool graduates themselves. Hope Auer has been writing stories and plays since she was very young. She began writing A Cry From Egypt, the first book in The Promised Land Series, as a school assignment when she was only thirteen and her family was studying ancient Egypt! This historical fiction book deals with the period before the Exodus, when the Israelites were still in slavery.
