The Duchess of York has produced numerous books for children throughout the years, including the Budgie the Little Helicopter series and her Little Red books. She has also written books for adults, and her latest, titled Her Heart for a Compass, will be a fictionalized account of one of her ancestors, Lady Margaret Montagu Douglas Scott.
This will be the first historical fiction novel written by the duchess, and based on her latest Instagram video, she seems super thrilled for its release. “A sweeping historical romance, #HerHeartForACompass is the fictionalised account of my ancestor, Lady Margaret Montagu Douglas Scott,” she wrote in the caption of her post. “The book, co-authored with my friend @marguerite_kaye, follows Lady Margaret from the drawing rooms of Queen Victoria’s court and the grand country houses of Scotland and Ireland, to the slums of London and the mercantile bustle of 1870’s New York.”
Ferguson added a personal note to the end, saying, “I hope you love this novel as much as I do. Available in bookshops around the world from 3rd August, Her Heart for a Compass is available to pre-order now. Link in my bio. @harpercollins @millsandboonuk @williammorrowbooks.”
