John falls in love with Peggy the moment he meets her on New Year's Eve. Nine years of marriage and two children later, nothing has changed. The beautiful Irish girl with the thick, black shining hair and sparkling, brilliant blue eyes is still the center of his world. But when Peggy tells him one Saturday night in July that she can't go sailing because she's too tired to move, John's concerned. When Peggy is diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukemia later that week, he's terrified. And when she dies seventeen days later, he's shattered, his world destroyed. So why then just days after Peggy's death does John call Nancy, the young woman who once lived next door, and ask her out to dinner? Why does Nancy say yes? And what happens when people ignore the rules of propriety and allow themselves to be drawn into a relationship they know will shock and offend family and friends? What price do they pay for breaking one of society's most time-honored rules of behavior? Rules Get Broken deals with love lost, love found, and the collateral damage along the way and demonstrates what love is...and isn't. John Herbert's simple, elemental style, unique insight, and rare sensitivity make Rules Get Broken an unforgettable love story and a must-read.

Have your tissues ready...

It has been a long time since I read something so moving. John Herbert has written a beautiful account of love in its many guises and the joy, comfort and sometimes pain, that it can bring. It is an answer to all the silent (and not so silent) judgements that others pass. Finding love after loss is courageous, in my opinion, and though there were twists and turns, and difficulties, aplenty in this book, it was heart-warming to see that love and family are all that matters.
