Lunch at Delnor is a love story about two individuals with vastly different backgrounds. Their relationship has to overcome many challenges from family and friends, as well as, the world that we live in today. They are also challenged by the charged racial and political climate of today. In addition, the book focuses on how everyone tends to place labels on people based upon superficial characteristics rather than giving people the benefit of the doubt and taking the time to get to know the real person. In Lunch at Delnor, Bill and Rose must fight through the labels placed on them by others and trust their instincts in regard to their feelings for each other.
