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.
