Susan & the Spae Wife Illustration
When Mirren the spae wife (i.e. fortune teller) has to go home to look after her mother who has just suffered a broken leg, Susan takes over and tells people a lot of facts about their lives and makes lots of predictions, a role that she enjoys a great deal. From the short story Susan and the Spae Wife, published in the Collins' Girls' Annual 1960. Set on Arran, this is the last of the four Susan short stories.
