With a backpack and $1,500, she traveled 50,000 miles alone around the world. She was stranded in Iran, received by Indira Ghandi in India, and spent the night in a mud hut just a few miles from cannibal country in Papua New Guinea. Granted an audience with the King of Tonga and trading her clothes for lodgings on Easter Island were some of the experiences that enabled her to rediscover new strengths and potential long since dormant in a marriage grown stale.
But the adjustments the new liberated Sabina and her husband had to make upon her return home six months later, (and 30 pounds thinner) proved to be the most difficult part of her "sabbatical". Ultimately their marriage becomes richer and stronger than either could have imagined.
A Marriage Sabbatical is a fascinating and inspirational account of a middle-aged woman's extraordinary, lone, global odyssey in search of herself, told with warmth, candor, and good humor.

"Her lessons and incredible adventures are shared enthusiastically and rendered thoughtfully." &mdash Marcia R. Hoffman, American Library Association
"A Marriage Sabbatical is wise and worldly — a lively and affectionate story of how one woman coped with unexpected crises and pleasures." — Larry Rumley, Seattle Times
"A Marriage Sabbatical is entertaining reading particularly so for anyone who has ever felt suffocated by the expectations of others, who regret the rut life has fallen into; who wishes living today affords more adventure." — Marilyn Bailey, St. Paul/Minn. Pioneer Press & Dispatch
