Throughout history, Anonymous has been a woman. 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 1927, seventeen-year-old Elsie is dropped off in a new city with three other teenage girls, who have each trained since childhood to become the wife of a powerful man. And 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. But as these ambitious girls compete for the heart of a boy who has been given everything, Elsie starts to wonder what would happen if the name on that future ballot was hers.
