In August, author Dianne Christner kicks off a new series with the Mennonite romance Something Old (Barbour Books), the first in her Plain City Bridesmaids series. “The common thread in the Plain City Bridesmaids series is a friendship between three little girls who make a pact at church camp,” says Dianne, who was raised a Mennonite. “Each book features a different friend. Timewise, it is a progression of the three friends’ lives. There are three books in this series, but I intend to keep writing about the Mennonites in the future.”
