Waterstones Says

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.

London 1865

In an attempt to rebel against a society where women are expected to conform, free-spirited Lady Margaret Montagu Scott flees her confines and an arranged marriage. But Lady Margaret's parents, the Duke and Duchess of Buccleuch, as close friends with Queen Victoria, must face the public scrutiny of their daughter's impulsive nature, and Margaret is banished from polite society.

Finding strength amongst equally free-spirited companions, including Queen Victoria's daughter Princess Louise, Margaret resolves to follow her heart. On a journey of self-discovery that will take her to Ireland, America, and then back to Britain, Lady Margaret must follow her heart and search for her place, and her own identity, in a changing society.

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.

“Fabulous and thrilling”

What a great read, I sometimes get easily distracted and bored from books at certain points. This book is detailed and sets the scene well. You genuinely can’t wait to find out what happens in the proceeding chapter!
