This story is about many things:
✅ Love and Second Chances
✅ Adultery and It’s Pain
✅ Lives Changing … Young and Old Alike
Seven old broads. When you read it, it’s rather humorous… seven old broads. Yep, that’s what they called themselves and that’s all they were. But oh my, do those seven old broads make an impact.
Instead of pouting and having a pity party, these old ladies allowed themselves to be used…. used for G_d. When their church had dwindled down to just those seven and the diocese decided to shut the doors … for good, those old ladies thought they had lost everything. Little did they know the plans He had for them. They gained a new church… well, that is if you call a very old crumbling down empty church building new. And in that old church they started a movement, a movement that brought young and old alike inside those church doors, people who were down on their luck, people full of fear and some that didn’t know what the word ‘fear’ was.
This book also shows how adultery affects the lives of many, not just the ones caught in the act. Collateral damage seems always to find the innocent while the guilty go unpunished… for awhile.
This book is emotional, it’s painful and it’s realistic. But sin won’t go unpunished forever. And love always wins, regardless of the age difference.
✒︎ God was leading Tonya into the next chapter of her life. And, I have a feeling He was leading Roy too, only to two very different destinations. In the book Tonya mentions that God forgave King David and thus she had forgiven Roy, her adulterous husband. But what Tonya didn’t mention is that while King David had been forgiven, he very much reaped what he sowed.
✒︎ Roy was the pastor of a large church. His affair seemed to only be a secret to Tonya, his wife, and 13 year old Emma, their daughter. Everyone knew but no one bothered to question Roy about his adultery… until it all exploded.
✒︎ Loved how Fiona called those seven old broads a flock of guinea hens, a whole gaggle of ‘em’.
✒︎ It took me a while to get into the story. I kept getting confused with how the chapters went from the old broads to the modern day action. I kept thinking it was a past and present scenario. But that wasn’t the case. It was how two groups of people ended up together, making a big difference in lives.
✒︎ Loved how the author didn’t sugar coat things…. This was very realistic, especially in today’s society.
Knocking is a story that echos those times in all our lives when we must face unexpected change; the kind of change that starts out hard, even gut-wrenching, but ends up filling a void with blessings beyond measure!
