Publisher Description

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.

“Sheena Boekweg’s A Sisterhood of Secret Ambitions is a whip-smart alternative historical fiction that reimagines a world where a secret society of women work behind the scenes to change history. Readers will root for Elsie as she struggles to navigate friendship, ambition, and romance in her quest to save the world. By turns fresh, funny, and feminist, this story is a powerful homage to sisterhood and to women realizing their dreams.”

— Dr. Rosalyn Eves, author of Blood Rose Rebellion 


  • “Beautifully written and undeniably compelling, it’s alternate history at its absolute best. Boekweg creates lasting characters, friendships, and tension throughout. You won’t be able to stop rooting for these ambitious girls—or put the story down.”

    — Alechia Dow, author of The Sound of Stars
  • “I love this book. Full of adventure, sisterhood, secret societies, gorgeous poems, and revisionist history, it shows how genuinely inclusive feminism can (and should) be. It also has tremendous things to say about women in politics and finding your own path, even when it’s different from the one laid out for you. A delightful, thought-provoking read that I finished in one sitting.”

    — Jamie Pacton, author of The Life and (Medieval) Times of Kit Sweetly
