Review

Inside stories about Stars that the studios never shared. I could not put it down and have gained a new appreciation for them Ron Masak, actor/writer
In that seductiverealmof mirage and illusionMary Claire Kendallhas uncovered authentic wellsprings of faith and divineillumination that transform our understanding of these legends of the silver screen. Her aptly titled bookwill indeed refresh the soul andenrichour view of Hollywood in its heyday. It is a treasure. Charles Scribner III, author of The Shadow of God: A Journey Through Memory, Art, and Faith
Yes, even Hollywood legends can be saved and Mary Claire Kendall proves it in her wonderful, revealing book, Oasis telling the stories of Hollywood actors and actresses who found peace of mind and soul in their conversion to the Catholic Church; or, in the case of one legendary director, famous for his cameos, his return to the Church. This book is not only spellbinding but also shows that all occupations, even in Hollywood, can put people on the way to salvation. Fr. C. John McCloskey, Church historian and research fellow at the Faith and Reason Institute in Washington D.C.
Oasis soars. It s a riveting narrative about stars I grew up with and, in the case of legends Gary Cooper and John Wayne, identified with for their portrayal of American heroism in films like Sergeant York and Flying Leathernecks. Learning of their own humanity and heroism makes me appreciate them so much more. Thank you, Mary Claire! Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney (USAF-Ret.)
Mary Claire Kendall's book is wonderful a delight to read and sure to have powerful impact on readers. I'm always encouraged by stories of how Christ works in people's lives. And to learn of the experiences of Hollywood stars all the better. Fred Barnes, executive editor, Weekly Standard
Celebrate with Mary Claire as she vividly brings to life stars of film and stage with such stories helping us see them in a whole new and, until now, largely unknown way. Guaranteed: You won t be able to stop readingOasis. Maj. Gen. Paul E. Vallely (USA-Ret.)
"All the world's a stage" may seem cynical. The fact is, though, that all people are actors in the splendid drama of salvation, and God offers them graces to play their parts well. On the big screen, there eventually appear the words "The End." For those who let the Lord direct them, that "End" is not merely a finale, but the beginning of an eternal joy for which earthly existence is a brief rehearsal. The lives described in Mary Claire Kendall's inspiring bookwere transformed by the realization that "life is changed, not ended." Fr. George William Rutler, S.T.D. "
