""I accept and embrace her mystery, her enigma, her memory,"" writes Dot Moore as she reflects on the extraordinary Amanda Mayhayley Lancaster. Through recollections from the people who knew her, Moore, with Katie Lamar Smith, recounts the amazing life of this early 20th-century fortune-teller from the poor regions of Georgia. A combination of fact and legend, Oracle of the Ages reads more like a novel than a biographical piece. Throughout these accounts, one can hear the voice of Lancaster and experience the powerful effects she had on those in her community.
