A Bright and Steady Flame

The Story of Aging and Enduring Friendship

Told with subtlety, humour, and heart, this delightful memoir marries adversity, the passage of time, and what it feels like to have a friend throughout it all. 

A Bright and Steady Flame gives insight into how deep and powerful a friendship can be. Armstrong's new book speaks to our compelling human need and ability to build long-lasting community. This is a love story that celebrates, for all people, the solace that true friendship can provide.
