And The Stars, And the Earth
Helen and Walter
Helen is Irina Shepard’s sister, and she and her husband Walter own a farm near to the Hollow north of town. They do much of the spinning, carding, and weaving of Irina’s wool. In addition to that work, they raise some small 30 acreage of wheat and vegetables, and breed the best sheepdogs in town. They have three children; Victor, 14, Grigori, 9, and Nina, 5.
