Behind every powerful man is a trained woman, and behind every trained woman is the Society. It started with tea parties and matchmaking, but is now a countrywide secret. Gossips pass messages in recipes, Spinsters train to fight, and women work together to grant safety to abused women and children. The Society is more than oaths—it is sisterhood and purpose.

In 1926, seventeen-year-old Elsie is dropped off in a new city with four other teenage girls. All of them have trained together since childhood to become the Wife of a powerful man. But when they learn that their next target is earmarked to become President, their mission becomes more than just an assignment; this is a chance at the most powerful position in the Society. All they have to do is make one man fall in love with them first.

Author Information

Sheena Boekweg, author of Glitch Kingdom, grew up reading books with tree branches peeking over her shoulder. Her novels feature plus-size girls with ambitions, love stories, and sometimes battle axes. She is a contributor to the body-positive anthology Every Body Shines, and believes that beauty is intrinsic, worth is unquestionable, and that you can’t solve every problem with food, but it can always help. She is well loved by a tall man with a great beard, their three kids, and the world’s most spoiled puppy.
