Susan Zainzinger and Frau Marcher

Fiction

"Frau Marcher ran a gasthof just out of town which prepared food for some of the workers building the power plant at the bottom of the valley. She needed someone to help out and had a spare room." Interrogating Ellie.

"Susan Zainzinger was a woman of her own age who had lived in Kaprun all her life, although – unlike many of the women Ellie had met there – her outlook on life was a broad-minded one and she had an intensely curious turn of mind. She was a dark-eyed, motherly woman too, large both physically and in the feeling of warmth that she pro­jected, who gave Ellie a welcome sense of being somehow enfolded in her presence, comforted – even cherished." Interrogating Ellie.
