"From the Kootenays to the coast and back again, from poverty and single parenthood to writing and activism, love and pain, A Bright and Steady Flame is a love letter to a fifty-five year friendship and a memoir that offers extraordinary insights into aging, love, loss and joy." -- Jane Hamilton Silcott, co-editor of Love Me True and Everything Rustles
"In A Bright and Steady Flame, we have been given a gift that is at once an easy read and a work of depth, intellect, compassion and razor-sharp observation. It is a book that makes me want to go into my library and re-read some of Armstrong's earlier works, if for no other reason than the quality of writing..." -- Lorne Eckersley, Creston Valley Advance
"This book may well change your worldview about aging. It will certainly encourage you to live as creatively as you can, particularly as you grow older. It is a book about navigating personal annihilation, about being ground into ashes and almost disappearing from life, only to return to the world with a poetic and riveting story that will light a fire in readers' hearts." -- Lee Reid, M. Ed, The Ormsby Review
