What occurred in the past helps to determine our present. Secrets found in an old diary, a love unfulfilled, violence, privations of war…these are the elements of Secret Sins of the Mothers. From 1847 until late in the 20th century the story of Margaret O’Donnell unfolds and we read of the tragedy of this young, innocent girl. We also learn of the impact her life had on her descendants.


 Dorothy K. Morris is a native of Charleston. SC, a city some of her forefathers from England, France, New England, Barbados and Greece helped to establish in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. She grew up in the Low Country of South Carolina, steeped in the tradition and pain still felt from the residue of slavery, the Civil War and its aftermath. Well-traveled, she adopted the West as her home and has remained there for many years, now residing in Tucson, AZ. She lives with her standard poodle. In addition to writing historical novels, Dorothy is an accomplished equestrienne and has been a competition coach for Combined Training. She enjoys genealogy and obtains many of the elements of her characters and plots from her extensive family history. She is a member of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution and is listed in Who's Who in America and Who's Who of American Women. In 2017 Morris received a Lifetime Achievement Award in the Arts from Marquis Who's Who for this series and other contributions.
