What must it have felt like to be cast aside by their parents, abandoned, left in an institution. How would these children have coped with the hurt, the resentment, the anger? Thus was born the Secret Society of Sugar and Spice: a group of girls who shared a similar fate; who banded together to save runaway girls from suffering as they had suffered; whose mission helped dull the pain by giving purpose to their lives.

Her name is Mace. Like the spice. And the weapon. At sixteen, she is the leader of the Secret Society of Sugar and Spice, a group of girls who are inmates of the Home for Abandoned and Orphaned Children and whose lives are only made bearable by their mission to rescue runaways from the streets of St. Paul, Minnesota. But now, in 1883, when the Secret Society is called upon to rescue Claire Sargent, a rich privileged girl who is being abused by her stepfather, their world is turned upside down and nothing is what it seems. When Mace’s father reappears at the Home and a gang of thugs searches for Claire, Mace, too, becomes a runaway and flees into a world where she must learn that enemies can become friends and hatred can turn into forgiveness.
