The Guide is a fantasy story that opens in the North-East of England around the time of the depression. The plot follows the journey of young Clara Brown who meets a wolf called Kai in her garden who tells her that he has the cure to her Mother’s illness. Under instruction from his master, Lord Tarano, Kai tells her that if she agrees to enter his world and help them with their problem first then she will be given the means to save her Mother’s life. With her mind in a whirl Clara agrees to go with Kai into his world but she cannot shake off the feeling of unreality. She feels drawn back to her safe warm bed and while every instinct screams at her that this cannot possibly be real she feels compelled to continue, for even the smallest possibility of helping her Mother is worth risking everything for.
