We are not guaranteed anything, not even this life. 

Rivers Young is the popular guy untouchable by reality. He is like a star—bright, consuming, otherworldly. The thing about stars, though, is that they eventually fall, and he is no different. 

He falls far and he falls hard. 

Delilah Bana is the outcast enshrouded in all of life’s ironies. Alone, in the dark, like dusk as it falls on the world. When Rivers hits the ground, she is the night that catches him. In the darkness, they meld into something beautiful that shines like the sun. 

Only, the greater the star is, the shorter its lifespan.


Lindy does this to me…every stinking time. Reading her amazing work is exquisitely painful. Her words so powerful, they gut you. They cut away all of the insanity and focus on one singular idea. Each story is different and holds such powerful truth, it brings you to your knees. This first happened, for me, with Take Care, Sara. The astonishing beauty between those characters, I never thought would be topped.

And then I met Rivers and Delilah. The enormity of their coupling was so profound for me. Delilah touched a part of my soul that I didn’t even know was there. You know, you read to open your mind, explore new worlds. Be reminded what it’s like to just feel. Feel on a deep level, something…anything. That’s what Delilah and Rivers did for me. It took an impossible situation, where hope and love should be replaced with anguish and despair, and it turned it on it’s head. Delilah wouldn’t stand for anything less and her truth and the power and conviction of that truth was the bright shining light that shone thru that one fateful summer.


Delilah and Rivers had just graduation from High School. Rivers was in a terrible boating accident and was feeling completely lost. He thinks his life is ruined. That there is nothing left to live for. All that he knew and all that he had was stripped from him and he has chosen to shut down. He has cloaked himself in despair and pity and shielded himself from anyone and everyone that cares for him.

In walks Delilah. Delilah with her care free attitude and her crazy hair. Delilah with her wonky smiles and impromptu dancing. Delilah with all her flair, but most importantly, her beautiful heart. She goes to work as a summer housekeeper at Rivers’ house. She does her job, but slowly starts to break away that wall surrounding Rivers. And the most beautiful part…they choose each other and their love story begins. Within their love, they find themselves. Delilah doesn’t have to be the social outcast and Rivers doesn’t have to be the popular jock. They can just be who they were meant to be.

Delilah saved Rivers and helped him to live, and breathe, and feel. But Rivers did the same for Delilah. Their love is epic. It’s profound. It expands space and time. Their truth is so beautiful, it’s blinding. If you wish to be touched by characters that will imprint themselves on your soul, then pick up Unlit Star and enjoy the beautiful bright light that is Delilah and Rivers.
