Publisher's Summary

In a similar vein to The Traveler’s Gift by Andy Andrews or Dinner with a Perfect Stranger by David Gregory, The Baggage Handler is a contemporary story that explores one question: What baggage are you carrying? 

The Baggage Handler by David Rawlings is an extraordinary novel that lingered in my heart long after I finished it.” (Colleen Coble, USA Today best-selling author of The House at Saltwater Point and the Lavender Tide series)

When three people take the wrong suitcase from baggage claim, their lives change forever. 

A hothead businessman coming to the city for a showdown meeting to save his job.

A mother of three hoping to survive the days at her sister's house before her niece’s wedding.

And a young artist pursuing his father’s dream so he can keep his own alive.

When David, Gillian, and Michael each take the wrong suitcase from baggage claim, the airline directs them to retrieve their bags at a mysterious facility in a deserted part of the city. There they meet the enigmatic Baggage Handler, who shows them there is more in their baggage than what they have packed, and carrying it with them is slowing them down in ways they can’t imagine. And they must deal with it before they can leave.

In this modern-day parable about the burdens that weigh us down, David Rawlings issues an inspiring invitation to lighten the load.

Absolutely amazing!

I couldn't put it down! I felt like they knew exactly the baggage that I was carrying! It made me sob many times! I will never be the same!

A great story, though my first audiobook...

This is a really enjoyable debut novel! It was one of the few books that have made me truly feel for the characters, particularly in regards to the background characters that shape their world.

The book is by a Christian author & published as a Christian book, but will also appeal to non-Christians as the message has a positive supernatural feel, but is certainly not “preachy”.

However, this was my first foray into the world of audiobooks, and while the narrator certainly did a great performance, the voices were very different to how I had imagined them, which was a bit distracting at times. Think I’m more of a reader than a listener...

But for people looking for something a bit different-and perhaps a little challenging-I would certainly recommend this book!
