Milicent Wryght marries the man of her dreams, but in short order, her uptown Manhattan life sours as she becomes jealous of herhubby’s hobby of training and caring for homing pigeons—and his apparent affection for them. Enraged by what she perceives as his neglect, a scorned Milicent, in a foolishly reckless act of revenge, simultaneously loses her husband and her good life. In an odd twist of Karmic events, she is propelled into a very different life and a most peculiar plight in the Big Apple.
