Summary Seventeen-year-old Elsie, tasked by the powerful and secret First Lady's Society with making the future President fall in love with her, wonders if being the wife of an influential man will satisfy her.
1927. Behind every powerful man is a trained woman, and behind every trained woman is the Society. It started with tea parties and matchmaking, but now gossips pass messages in recipes, spinsters train to fight, and women work together to grant safety to abused women and children. Elsie is dropped off in a new city with four other teenage girls that she has trained with since childhood to become the Wife of a powerful man. 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. -- adapted from jacket
