Fergie’s First novel is a bodice ripper


The Duchess of York’s debut novel is her own “personal brand” of historical fiction that will draw on her own “unique journey and experience­s.” Her Heart for a Compass will tell the imagined story of Lady Margaret Montagu Douglas Scott, Sarah Ferguson’s great-great-aunt. While the Duchess has written many children’s books, the novel, out in August, is her first adult fiction. “I have long held a passion for historical research and telling the stories of strong women in history through film and television,” she said. The Duchess wrote the novel with the help of “collaborat­or and mentor” Marguerite Kaye, who has written more than 50 historical romances. Fergie is already working on her second novel.
