Oracle of the Ages: Reflections on the Curious Life of Fortune Teller Mayhayley Lancaster

Dot Moore (Author) Katie LaMar Smith (Author)


Mayhayley Lancaster was many things through her interesting life: lawyer, schoolteacher, political activist, fortune teller, numbers runner, and self-proclaimed "oracle of the ages." In this volume of creative nonfiction, the people who knew her reflect on her personality, her politics, and her passions, offering the reader a chance to delve fully into Mayhayley lore and legend. Oracle offers strange and often hilarious stories of the poor Georgia South in the post-Depression era, and how the eccentric Mayhayley's charisma and mysterious powers cast a spell on all the people who knew--and inevitably misunderstood--her. Mayhayley Lancaster also is the seer who figured prominently in the best-seller Murder in Coweta County.
