Dolores was a bright and beautiful college student when she made her film debut with Elvis Presley in Paramount's 1957 Loving You. She acted in nine more movies with other big stars such as Montgomery Clift, Anthony Quinn and Myrna Loy. She also gave an award-winning performance in the Broadway play The Pleasure of His Company and appeared in two television shows, including The Virginian. A turning point in her life occurred while playing Saint Clare in the movie Francis of Assisi, which was filmed on location in Italy.
Born Dolores Hicks to a complicated and colorful Chicago family, Mother Hart has travelled a charmed yet challenging road in her journey toward God, serenity and, yes, love. She entered the Regina Laudis Abbey in Bethlehem, Conn., at the peak of her career, not in order to leave the glamorous world of acting she had dreamed of since childhood, but in order to answer a mysterious summons she heard with the "ear of the heart." While contracted for another film and engaged to be married, she gave up everything to become a bride of Christ. Lavishly illustrated with many photos.
"Listen and attend with the ear of your heart."-- Saint Benedict

We can all learn something from this story, and it captivates you with stories about Hollywood legends, family struggles, confusions, heartaches, longings and sufferings...
Mother Dolores Hart is a wonderful witness of someone who heard the call the Lord had placed on her heart, and answered it.
God is calling each one of us.
Now, we aren't all destined to have a blossoming career in Hollywood, or to enter a Benedictine convent. We are asked simply to listen. There probably won't be a "lightning moment", but instead, we'll find our unique call in the quiet everyday moments of our lives. God grants us the desires of our hearts and I saw this played out so beautifully in Mother Dolores' life.
Whether you're Catholic or not, this is a biography worth reading!
