The Camera Never Lies by David Rawlings

Daniel, Kelly, and Milly appear to be the perfect family. But an old camera will expose secrets no one wants developed.

Daniel Whitely is a successful marriage counselor and bestselling author, yet his own marriage is in crisis and his daughter is drifting further away each day. To make matters worse, the deadline for his second book has come and gone, and he still hasn’t written a single word.

When Daniel inherits an old camera from his grandfather, he notices an inscription on the bottom: “No matter what you think you might see, the camera never lies.”

Daniel begins using the camera, but every time he develops his photos, they threaten to reveal secrets that could sabotage both his marriage and his career—exposing him as a fraud and destroying the life he has worked so hard to build.

He’s faced with a choice: keep his secrets and save his career or come clean and possibly save his family. Which will he choose? Which would you choose?


About The Author

My Review

A very different read, about not seeing what is in front of you, and a lot like the Twilight Zone, but a modern version using an old camera and black and white film.
This book will make you think, and what are we seeing, is it real, or just what we want to see? This is a read that will definitely show you that we perceive things differently, and innocent flirtation can turn to a romantic gesture, a silly fight with a spouse can be seen as a parent split by a child, and other innocent or what we think is ok can be very dangerous.
How is this all going to work out, you will be quickly turning the pages, and this is a read that can be done in one sitting.

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Thomas Nelson, and was not required to give a positive review.
