This is the best biography I have read in years! What a glorious testament to the fruitfulness of the Benedictine rule and how it transforms lives. Mother Dolores Hart brings to us a generous sharing of her life experience and the joy found in the peace and stability in the living with her monastic community. How could a woman walk away from “having it all”? Mother Dolores discovered the “pearl of great price”, and she found it by listening to the “ear of the heart”. An absolutely fantastic read and spiritually fulfilling work. A must read!!!! This conversation will go down as one of my favorites of all time!!! Thank you God!!!

“What a joy to be in the company of Mother Dolores Hart. She is a compassionate narrator, from her childhood days, darkened by parental alcoholism, to her Hollywood career and her calling as a Catholic nun. Mother Dolores talks candidly about the difficulty of becoming a cloistered, Benedictine nun. The struggle with years of discipline and the rigorous farm work at the Abbey of Regina Laudis. We learn there was something in her deepest heart she sought.” — —-Pia Lindstrom, television journalist, daughter of Ingrid Bergman
“Listen and attend with the ear of your heart.”
“Mother Dolores Hart is a remarkable woman with a remarkable story-one of love, devotion and faith.”
—Maria Shriver, bestselling author of Just Who Will You Be?
