DINNER WITH THE SMILEYS: ONE MILITARY FAMILY, ONE YEAR OF HEROES, AND LESSONS FOR A LIFETIME is a warm, wonderful story of a military family inviting fifty-two guests to dinner over a year's time while their father/husband was deployed as a Navy pilot. Weekly fill-ins ran the gamut from U.S. Senators to ninety-four-year-old neighbors, from a bookstore manager to a former major league baseball player and from a Grammy-winning musician to a zookeeper. Besides being an absolutely marvelous read, it should inspire all to want to say, "Guess who's coming to Dinner."
