Laura Jacobs is a writer who knows the New York woman better than anyone else. Margret Snow, a thirty-one year old artist is married to Charles, a university professor. Against the landscape of Central Park, the windows of Saks Fifth Avenue, glittering gallery openings, weekends at their Chesapeake Bay home and the couple's lifelong hobby - bird watching, Margret's well-ordered Manhattan life suffers a violent upheaval that pushes her beyond the boundaries of her hobby to make her an overnight art world sensation. Just as she's taken flight, Margret has fame ripped from her in this novel about a remarkable woman who is as rare and special as the birds that fill the skies above her.
