An Empty Cup

Amish woman Rosanna Zook lost her self-confidence within the confines of a loveless and abusive marriage. In the years spent quietly dealing with her burdens and dutifully caring for others, she forgot her sense of self and ability to feel. But after her first husband’s untimely death, she gets a second chance with Reuben Troyer, a godly man who welcomes Rosanna and her two children into his life.

Despite the love and respect she finds in her new marriage, Rosanna soon learns that juggling the demands of her family and church community is more than she can handle. When Rosanna becomes ill, she is forced to confront a hard truth: one empty cup cannot fill another. For a woman who has spent her life giving, will Rosanna finally be able to let go and receive?



“This book is quite easily my favorite by Sarah Price. I have read several of her books and enjoyed them all but this one grabbed me at the first page and didn’t let go until the last word had been read. This book could very well be used as a textbook on how to write great Amish fiction…”-Two Girls and a Book

“Sarah does an excellent job of bringing her readers into Rosanna’s thoughts and feelings so that we can truly share in her experiences. Journeying with Rosanna through her ups and downs is a captivating experience which also offers a challenge to take a step back and do some self-reflection about your own day-to-day choices.”- Southern Gal Loves to Read

“I could go on and on and say why this book is so wunderbar (wonderful) but I won’t. I will just say two things: “One Empty Cup” cannot fill another, and “Givers need to receive too.” You need to read this book and follow the life giving messages clearly written within the pages of this story.”- Debbie’s Dusty Deliberations
