Her heart for a compass, which Mills & Boon agreed to publish in the UK on August 3, is Sarah Ferguson’s first book, a work dedicated to reconstruction (appropriately fictionalized) of the life and loves of a great-great-aunt. Lady Margaret Montagu Douglas Scott, whose existence Ferguson discovered by chance, would have liked to “break the mold and follow her heart, falling in love along the way and thus discovering her own raison d’etre”.
“Although her parents were close friends of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, I was unable to find out much about my namesake, and so the idea of Her heart for a compassFerguson explained, whose Christian names include Margaret’s. «I had to manage real facts, news stories. And my imagination took over. I made up a story for Margaret that could include real facts and people, including some of my ancestors, “continued Fergie, whose work the publishing house defined” an engaging historical saga “, capable of” transporting the reader from the living rooms of the court of Victoria to the grandiose mansions of Scotland and Ireland, to then drag him into the slums of London to the merchant traffic of New York in 1870 ».
