Miss Dunham wrote a sequel to The Trail of the Conestoga in Toward Sodom, which follows the religious careers of the children of the Horst family in the early Waterloo settlement, as they, all but one, leave the faith of their fathers to join other churches or none at all. All of them, however, make outstanding contributions to church and society. In both novels Mennonite life is sympathetically portrayed.
Dunham also wrote a children's story with a Mennonite theme, Kristli's Trees (Toronto, 1948 and 1974).
