Publishers WeeklyPopular nighttime light listening radio host Delilah serves as a cooing therapist for listeners on 250 radio stations across the U.S. and Canada, who write their stories of loss and inspiration in "Dear Delilah" letters she reads on air before offering relief in the form of "sappy love songs." Here, she's collected some of the more memorable listener stories from the thousands she receives each week, most involving love, tragedy, faith and letting go, and handily noting the song aired for each: a young woman's journey from traumatized victim of (unnamed) violent crime to love is tagged with Lonestar's "Amazed"; a Christmas Day Vietnam War story about "an enemy who performed the greatest act of friendship imaginable" prompts The Hollies' "He Ain't Heavy, He's my Brother." Though Delilah contributes some heartfelt introductions, these letters lose much of their power without the voice or the audio track to back them up. Though a fine gift for major Delilah fans, your time is probably better spent listening to her show.
