Subtitled "a romance,"  Sabbatical is the story of Susan Rachel Allan Seckler, a sharp young associate professor of early American literature -- part Jewish, part Gypsy, and possibly descended from Edgar Allan Poe -- and her husband Fenwick Scott Key Turner, a 50-year-old ex-CIA officer currently between careers, a direct descendant of the author of "The Star Spangled Banner" and himself the author of a troublemaking book about his former employer. Seven years into their marriage, they decide to take a sabbatical, a sailboat journey on which they sum up their years together and try to make important decisions about the years ahead.
