Dorothy Dart


Dorothy Dart is married,and lives with her husband at Belivah Q'ld. Her career as an author has spanned thirty years during which time she has continued to write intermittently whilst successfully raising a family of four, and now she is grandmother to eleven.
After having had five novels for pre and early teens published during the 80s and early 90s she tried her hand at writing plays for use within her local church until in 2007 she made her first venture into the genre of the historical novel with a book based on the life of her husband's great-great-grandmother. This was followed in 2009 by the fictional novel 'The Katy Tree' which tells the story of a Scottish family who emigrate to Tasmania in 1824. Many times since that book was published Dorothy's fans have asked for a sequel. So here it is, though if you have not read the first book, don't worry this second in the series has been written to stand alone.
'When the Bough Breaks' tells of the dark hidden years in the life of the MacGregor family between 1832 and 1875. A real Whodunnit that keeps you guessing until the last!!!
