Publisher's Summary

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?

Not much excitement

The story line is very predictable. Story is based on one character and her real weak mess. I am sure many women caved under dominant husbands. But the 22 chapters went on like a broken record.

Empty Cup was truly empty

Listened to this in my car on a trip & would’ve deleted it but didn’t have anything else to listen to. Have nothing positive to say about it. Very disappointed.

An Empty Cup a Full Blessing

I loved this book. It read as a woman's reflection but also imparted a gentle sermon on grace and forgiveness. I found it warm and touching, as well as a fine story. The soft and clear reading was soothing and easy to listen to. It was a wonderful reminder to be aware of mental illness and depression and be supportive. I highly recommend this book.

This was terrible

I'm not sure why I kept listening, I guess I was being optimistic that it would get better. I'm still trying to figure out what the plot was! Really bad. The narration was laughable at times; I'm still trying to figure out why the narrator gave the neighbors daughter a strong southern accent while we knew she grew up in Pennsylvania! Don't waste your time, money or earbuds on this one!

Good free book, easy listen

This book had a fair story and plot. It was a quick and easy listen that didn't require much concentration to follow. I enjoyed it as a listen while driving and cleaning house. I would note that the plot line is rather thin throughout and sums up quite quickly. The character development is rather shallow and the handling of depression as a topic is thin and brief. However, for a free audio book, I can overlook these issues and say it is worth the listen if you need background audio while doing something else.

Not really a second chance

more like, back into the frying pan as her second husband was a pain too!

An Amish woman loses her first alcoholic husband and remarries a more respectable man. He gradually turns out not to be that great a catch either and she sinks into a deep depression. So yeah, bit of a downer this one.
