cover Camera Never LiesDavid Rawlings, author of The Baggage Handler, returns with another probing story: what would you do if your secrets were revealed to those around you?
Daniel Whiteley is a successful couples counselor who regularly puts families back together, helping them face up to the things in life they hide. But his own marriage is falling apart.
His wife, Kelly, knows Daniel is hiding something from her, but she doesn’t dare probe for fear her own secrets will be revealed.
When his grandfather dies, Daniel inherits an old SLR camera from a time when cameras pointed away from the person taking the photograph. On the camera is an inscription: “Use this camera wisely and remember, regardless of the picture you think you took, the camera never lies.”
When Daniel first uses his new camera he finds someone has already filled the roll of film. Annoyed, he processes the film and finds photos of a secret that he’s been hiding from his wife and daughter.
He has no idea who took them.
Now every time he uses the camera, the photographs reveal another secret about himself the he is desperate to keep-as well as those of his wife, which he is desperate to uncover.

My Thoughts:

How would YOU feel if you had a camera that looked into your inner soul? It can see what you are thinking and feeling!! Scary, isn't it?! That is exactly the feelings that Daniel experienced in this book.

The characters are described so vividly that I easily identified with them. The fears and worries became mine as I walked alongside Daniel and his wife, Kelly. Although I rarely read books involving the mystical and magical world, this author has changed my opinion. A magic camera is certainly not realistic but the author has used it with such deep meaning that the characters and plot kept me glued to my chair. I could not put this book down. The hidden truths that were uncovered were intense and soul searching. Unexpected twists and turns were in every chapter as these characters found their way through all that was thrown at them. 

This novel gives the reader lessons to be learned. Many good messages came through loud and clear.

A great read and one that left me deep in thought.
