Born to American Catholic parents, nine-year-old Andrea Forman astounded everyone by demonstrating an inexplicable affinity for understanding ancient Sanskrit texts. Sanskrit scholars verified her accuracy at 95 percent. Not long after, Andrea's younger sister Sara also showed a profound connection with the ancient language. Unable to find a logical explanation for the phenomenon, Linda and Rob Forman gradually came to acknowledge the spiritual energy that had manifested itself in their daughters' unusual gift. Dreaming in Real Time is Linda's account of the miracle as it unfolded and a reflection on her own growing appreciation for these startling, transformative "God things." As the musical duo Shanti Shanti, her daughters continue to bring the ancient language and its healing powers to audiences across the nation. Included is a CD companion to accompany the reading.
