The compelling audio version of the best-selling book about the amazing story of the former actress with the big film career who stunned Hollywood and left it all at the age of 24 to enter the contemplative Benedictine Abbey of Regina Laudis. Now fifty years later, Mother Dolores gives this fascinating account of her whole life, and provides here a wonderful audio reading of the complete book.
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, and she also gave a Tony-nominated performance in the Broadway play The Pleasure of His Company.
She entered the Abbey at the peak of her career in order to answer a mysterious call she heard with the “ear of the heart”. While contracted for another film and engaged to be married, she abandoned everything to become a bride of Christ.
