Royal Book Challenge: Finding Sarah by Sarah Ferguson

Book 6/500

Finding Sarah: A Duchess's Journey to Find Herself by Sarah Ferguson
Published 2011
315 Pages
ISBN: 1-4391-8954-2

After her disastrous involvement in the cash for access scandal in May 2010, Sarah Ferguon appeared on Oprah to give her side of the story. The end result of her appearance was a six-part reality series on Oprah's OWN network and this book.

Finding Sarah is annoying on many levels but it takes guts to reveal yourself. For all her public gaffes, she definitely has a gift. No matter what she does, you can't help but feel for her. Eventually. The first two chapters show Sarah in all her misunderstood glory. Just when I was about to give up on her and throw this book against the wall, she began her journey at Chapter 3. Much to my relief.

Throughout the excuses and explanations, her poetry, nuggets of wisdom, email excerpts from supportive friends, and ability to find herself better in exotic locales, she wore me down. I started futilely rooting for her as she finally (spoiler alert) found herself. All nicely wrapped up with an open ending for the inevitable sequel.
