Plains City Bridesmaids Series by Dianne Christner
Here''s a little secret. I typically cannot make it through Mennonite fiction.
Y''all know I adore Amish fiction, but the mennonite ones don''t grab me I miss the buggies, the lack of electricity, the plainness that the Amish provide. With that said, this book had me from nearly the beginning it didn''t instantly grab me, but about a quarter of the way in I started loving it. The main character, Katy, had such an amazing transformation in this book.

I loved her character development. She grew so much and I felt like I was growing along with her. There were a few parts that were a little flat, but the book had such a great payoff in the end for me. Readers will appreciate Katy''s struggle to remain firm in her faith in a world blatantly opposed to God''s standards.

Katie comes off at first as too judgmental, and a bit "holier than thou" even towards her friends, but everything that happens to her makes her start to painfully accept that there is room redemption, and that differences can divide or strengthen a friendship.

Throughout the story, Katie keeps a journal of cleaning tips and recipes, hand cream remedies, other recipes, and spiritual insights.
