“Brutally honest and wonderfully witty, The Marriage Diaries had me laughing and crying–often at the same time.”
–Gemma Townley, author of Little White Lies


Meet Sean and Celeste–living proof that opposites attract.

Savvy and sophisticated Celeste is a top clothing buyer in London; Sean is a scruffy, eccentric writer turned stay-at-home dad who, courtesy of the couple’s toddler, has mastered the art of changing stinky diapers. Needing to be seen (if only by himself) as more than just a drool-spattered Mr. Mom, Sean begins a hilarious journal detailing the ridiculous, wondrous, and sometimes salacious aspects of being a househusband–including such juicy tidbits as his growing attraction to the beautiful Uma Thursday, a single mother from his son’s play group.

But when Celeste stumbles upon Sean’s secret entries, she’s dismayed to discover she’s opened a Pandora’s box on her marriage. Hardly the kind of girl to take a straying husband lying down, she devises a scheme of her own, and the twin strands of the will-they-won’t-they plot become ever more entangled. Can love trump lust? Can fidelity conquer passion? Or will the destructive forces of untrammeled desire wreck what may just be, for all its faults, the perfect marriage?

With sparkling wit and characters who leap off the page, Rebecca Campbell has crafted a brilliant and utterly winning novel about vows, straying, and finding a way home.
