When Shoba Narayan returns to India with her husband and two daughters after many years in the United States, the last thing she's expecting to see is a cow in the elevator of her modern apartment building. "It is for the housewarming ceremony on the third floor," explains Sarala, the woman holding the cow with a rope. Surprising herself, Shoba asks whether the cow might bless her apartment next. so begins a friendship between Shoba and Sarala, who also sells fresh milk right across the street. When Shoba agrees to buy Sarala a new cow, they set off looking for the just the right heifer, and what was at first a simple economic transaction becomes a story of Indian food, culture, and mythology, of bridging divides - and of the inspiring connection between two irresistible women and the animals they love.
