"Authentic and funny, filled with the important things in life—Center Ring brings five unique women to life.”
- Kamy Wicoff, author of Wishful Thinking
Norah Merrit, dedicated obstetrician and “sister-friend”, shakes up her Girl’s Night Out group with a stunning confession. In the wake of Norah’s revelation, each of the four -- photojournalist Camille, stay-at-home mom Leila, publicist Ellison and designer Kate -- are left questioning their roads-not-taken and revisiting the vastly different choices they’ve made in love and life. Told in five alternating points of view, Center Ring is a story about modern women finding balance through action, relationships and growth as well as a deep examination of the power of female friendship and its complex bonds.

Center Ring is packed with love, humor, friendship and motherhood. Waggoner has managed to write a book that captures the lives of friends in a way that really showcases the complications, heartbreaks and victories of every day life in a way that both breaks and warms the heart simultaneously.
