Helen

Character Analysis

We never meet Helen in person, but we learn that she is Lucy's former lover. She used to live on the smallholding with Lucy, but now she lives in Johannesburg. We don't know why she's moved on or whether or not things are going to be patched up between her and Lucy. The relationship between Lucy and Helen is one that David is really curious about and, heck, the same thing goes for us.
