Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, to release first novel, "Her Heart for a Compass"

The Duchess of York has landed a book deal with the romantic fiction publisher Mills & Boon, revealing that she “drew on many parallels from my life” for the historical tale.

Sarah Ferguson’s debut novel, Her Heart for a Compass, will be released in August and tells a fictional account of the life and love story of her great-great-aunt, Lady Margaret Montagu Douglas Scott.

Mills & Boon describes it as an “immersive historical saga” that “sweeps the reader from the drawing rooms of Victoria’s court and the grand country houses of Scotland and Ireland, to the slums of London and the mercantile bustle of 1870s New York”.

It follows Margaret, “who desires to break the mould, follow her internal compass – her heart – and discover her raison d’être – falling in love along the way”.

She's always trying to make a buck.

Keep in mind she never even went to college (like her friend Diana).

She's trashy. Rude to Diana.

by Anonymousreply 201/13/2021

Well now, I loved Diana, but she was certainly no angel herself.

What the fuck does any of this have to do with Diana?

by Anonymousreply 401/13/2021

I want to read this book as much as I want to sit through Duchess Meghan narrating a Disney nature documentary.

R3 R4 she tried to use a nasty antedote about her "Dear Diana" to sell her book in the 90s.

Is she still styled The Duchess of York?

I wonder if the leading man in the novel will be a noncey kiddy diddler.

Was anyone really asking for a Sarah Ferguson novel?

by Anonymousreply 1701/13/2021

This woman is incredibly tiresome. She was supposed to have had a meeting on the 101st floor of the north tower of the World Trade Center on 911. But because of bad traffic between Rockefeller Center (she'd appeared on the Today Show earlier that morning) and the WTC, she wasn't there when the plane hit.

I swear that Prince Philip is holding out for as long as he can to stop her and Andrew remarrying.

If you’re in to trashy parodies of the Royals, Channel 4’s comedy, The Windsors, is hysterical. Their caricature of Sarah Ferguson is hilariously spot on. (I think it’s on Netflix in the States).

by Anonymousreply 2001/13/2021

The Windsors is hilarious. Their depiction of Fergie is actually pretty charming...

She should writer her autobiography, Part II. That would be more interesting than a novel.

Writing good novels is hard.

by Anonymousreply 2401/13/2021

The sequel to "Her Heart for a Compass" will be the raunchier "I Said Suck My Toes, Big Guy!"

[quote She should writer her autobiography, Part II.

She came out with her second volume of memoirs all the way back in 2011, r24,.

This woman just won't go anyway. Her day in the sun was a long time ago. Is she doing it because she still has debt problems?

Terrible title. Yet, totally in line with what you'd expect the title to be.

Mills & Boon is the UK version of Harlequin. Not exactly a prestige publisher.

Try as they might, they can't make this plain Jane interesting and calling her the "Duchess of Pork" is an insult to pigs.

Will it be published by Harlequin here in the States?

Of course she didn't write this book - a ghost writer did.
