Loosely based on the life of her ancestor Lady Margaret Montagu Scott, Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York’s sweeping historical romance follows her headstrong heroine from the conformity of Queen Victoria’s court to a search for identity and love in Ireland and America.
Incorporating research into her heritage and drawing upon her own unique life journey, the Duchess, with co-writer Marguerite Kaye, pens a fictional account of the life of her great-great-aunt, Lady Margaret Montagu Douglas Scott. Rich in historical detail, and set amongst the drawing rooms of Victoria’s court, and the grand country houses of Scotland and Ireland, Her Heart for a Compass is a breathtaking romantic novel of daring to follow your heart against all odds.
