Brenda Lee Phillips about this book: One night, I had a dream that a young man went into a book shop and asked the lady behind the counter for a book called, "Burning Small Corner". He told the counter lady that the book had been written by his grandmother. Then I woke up. I realized that this young man could have been my grandson. Because the title of the book had so insistanly remained in my mind, I decided that this book needed to be written for my grandchildren.
"Burning Small Corner" is the true story of a girl who is born in Swansea Village when life was uncomplicated and stress-free. She entered the sixties at a time when her moral compass had gone askew and was propelled into the "Hippy" age of free-love, psychedelic drugs, rock music, and wild abandon. Although, at first she resisted, deep down, she knew it was her calling to find the absolute "Truth". It was one night, at an isolated hippy commune in the Canadian Rocky Mountains that she had a prophetic dream she would never forget. That's when she was led to go on a mission to find those people in that dream.
