“Bouncing back from life’s challenges is how we build up our capacity for resilience and Ferris’ book offers readers a kind helping hand in doing so. This book is an ode to small moments every day– knowing and trusting what will unfold when we commit to ourselves for the sake of our healing.”  

~ Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness and Real Life

Donna seems to have it all – a generous husband, two healthy kids, a Jersey shore home – but something is missing.

When she signs up for yoga teacher training, her carefully cultivated life begins to crumble. Her husband is having an affair. Dangerous childhood secrets resurface. Her career goes sideways. And she doesn’t even like yoga…yet.

As Donna reels and heals, she discovers love, rescues dogs, and confronts another crisis of faith when her mother falls ill.

A devastating but funny, life-affirming love story, We’ve Got to Stop Meeting Like This is for anyone who has ever dared to fight for what matters – and believes it’s never too late to find love or enlightenment.

But not necessarily in that order.

Get it.
