The Ear in the Heart by Richard DeNent and Dolores Hart, 457 pages, read by Judy , on 11/16/2013

The Ear of the HeartActress Dolores Hart’s journey from Hollywood starlet to taking vows as a nun. The book takes you through the early years of Hollywood and Dolores’ decision to join a cloistered convent. Since I was a fan of Dolores from her films with Elvis Presley and knowing she left Hollywood to become a nun, I found the book quite interesting. ┬áThe book does provide a deep insight into her difficulty leaving a glamorous lifestyle, a career she loved, and a marriage engagement to the ultimate decision to join a life of prayer.

For a short time she was at the Carmelite Sister’s House in Jefferson City, Missouri, and was recently featured in an article in the Catholic Missourian.
