A poignant, loving, revealing, inside account of the other side of Gilligan’s Island – the private lives of Bob and Dreama Denver. Growing up in southern West Virginia, Dreama never imagined her fantasy of becoming an actress would ultimately become reality and land her in the arms of a man with one of the most recognizable faces on the planet. In the pages of this book, a love letter to the husband she adored, you’ll find love, laughter and tears. It is inspirational, possibly even life-changing, but it is never boring.
“For almost 30 years I was married to the man the rest of the world knew as Gilligan. Almost five decades of reruns have made his television character iconic, but the Bob Denver I knew and loved was legendary to me for his courage, his commitment to his severely autistic son and his love for the wife of his dreams, maybe the reason he called me Dreams.”—Dreama Denver
