Center Ring by Nicole Waggoner Review

About Center Ring

One evening, Norah Merrit, a dedicated obstetrician known for her bedside manner and service to Doctors Without Borders, walks into Girl’s Night Out with a confession that shakes the group to its core.  In the aftermath of Norah’s revelation, each of her “sister friends” -- 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 alternating points of view between the five friends, 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.

Cassandra's Review-  I have never really had the true feeling or ability to bond with people the way that this book creates it.  I really enjoyed taking part in spending time with each of the  characters as they are all very well written and placed in the story.  I felt a mix of delight and sadness during my two sittings in which it took to finish the book (over 400 pages).  I think that this author must be a real joy to spend time with and a blessing to know.  Her work is very powerful and aims for the heart.
