Portland Book Review by Mary-Lynne Monroe

Chance Encounters: Travel Tales from Around the World is a delightful collection of twenty-three stories. Editor Janna Graber has chosen a variety of authors’ works, along with two of her own, which represent not only their personal, diverse cultural backgrounds but also the diversity of settings where each has traveled – from Chile to France to Japan to Kenya to the United Arab Emirates to the USA.

Story after story focuses on the author’s encounters with locals while traveling. Each experience touched and changed the author in some small or large way, all of them significant. READ THE WHOLE REVIEW
