Finding Sarah

Order Finding Sarah

I can hardly wait ... not.

Sarah Ferguson has written a new book, Finding Sarah A Duchess's Journey to Find Herself, which will be published in late June by Atria, a division of Simon & Schuster.  The price of the book is $25.99

From the press release:

"More than a year ago my life was so off course that I wondered whether I would ever be able to find my way back. I was broken and lost, not even sure where I was, but out of this emotional barrenness I knew I had to find ME. And so, I took a journey to find myself, and begin the process of healing all the broken places. FINDING SARAH is the story of that journey."

So begins this extraordinarily personal memoir by Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York. Her struggles with adversity have taught her that life's lows can become a source of strength and courage. She knows, first hand, what it means to feel lost and she also knows that it is never too late to find your way back, to attain your goal, to take back control of your life and to make a special dream come true. Her journey, in so many ways, is everyone's journey and as she shares her story with us she also shares the advice and wisdom she benefited from along the way. As she spends time with Dr. Phil McGraw, she gains a new understanding of her relationship with herself and with others. Suze Orman helps Sarah unravel the poisonous money issues she suffers from. Martha Beck teaches her how let go of her negative self-image. Many other friends and experts populate these pages and you will meet them all.

Through intimate diary excerpts and personal emails from friends and family, Sarah opens herself unsparingly. On every page of this book you will hear from Sarah's friends and guides, her "real-life angels," as they help her get to the root of her problems – from comfort eating to self-loathing, from reckless over-spending to notorious mishaps. You will learn from them, as she did. In this way, Sarah hopes not only to talk to you as a friend but to inspire you, through her own experiences, to look closely at your own life and where you wish to improve it, then to encourage you to follow your instincts and find your true path.

Sarah Ferguson did, and so can you.

I can hazard a guess and say that Finding Sarah is the companion to the six-part eponymous series that will debut on the OWN network on June 12.

This is not a new topic for the former wife of the Duke of York.  In 2003, Simon & Schuster published What I Know Now : Simple Lessons Learned the Hard Way, which was "written" by Sarah Ferguson.  Did she forget what she learned ...


  1. I'm with you - *groan* all the way. There probably isn't anything in this material that hasn't been said already (and then reneged upon)!

  2. I couldn't agree more... There's nothing worse than "celebrities" finding themselves... again and again and again. Deadly dull stuff, really. Especially when you see all of the marvelous books you've reviewed that really are worth reading!
