Great Biblical Fiction
Date:April 10, 2014
A Cry from Egypt is positive in every way. The characters are relatable; they each have their good points and their flaws, but good traits and bad traits are always defined. It gives a realistic-feeling insider's look at the plagues of Egypt, making you feel like you're there; it describes the setting without bogging young readers down with hard-to-understand details; it's exciting and fast-paced; and best of all, it builds faith. Jarah especially, but also all her family and friends, learn so much about the Lord's trustworthiness. It's a beautiful lesson that will leave you feeling encouraged, but it's also wrapped up in a story that grabs your imagination and enhances your Biblical knowledge! I liked it better than a somewhat similar book, Tirzah. I'm so glad I have this book to keep for my future children. I look forward to how Miss Auer continues the story of the journey to the Promised Land!
