Looking to the Stars from Old Algiers And Other Long Stories Short is a collection of stories that span the years of 2002 to 2017 written by Jan Risher. During these fifteen years time, she writes about adventures and travels she went on around the world, the process of adopting and parenting her beautiful daughter from China, the horrific events after Hurricane Katrina, and how she wants to help the world. She, also, shares about her family, friends, happy times and sad ones, celebrations, grief and loss. Looking to the Stars from Old Algiers And Other Long Stories Short is written in a journal entry type format. Each entry is short and easy to read. I enjoyed reading about her life during this time, especially the places she saw around the world. It was intriguing to read the details of the places she went to, places I can only dream of one day visiting. It was nice to see through her eyes what it is like in those area. She made me feel like I was right there with her. It was, also, a reminder of moments that had happened during 2002 and 2017. I am giving Looking to the Stars from Old Algiers And Other Long Stories Short three and a half stars. I think many readers would enjoy reading this book. It is definitely worth a read. Jan Risher is a talented writer and would love to read a work or fiction by her one day in the future. I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
