About the author


James (Kramer) Dornbach has lived a hard life on a path to forgiveness. He suffered tremendous emotional and physical abuse and lost his baby sister at the hands of his father. He retains the horrific memories of her death. James lived in a barn for most of his childhood and learned to survive the isolation and neglect.  James became a deeply spiritual person, but has traversed a challenging road filled with twists and turns. Throughout the years, he has been thankful he has had people in his life that were "bright lights at the end of his tunnel" who supported him in his journey. He believes that no one should suffer like he and his siblings, and no child should live in the circumstances in which he lived. His goal is to help others be aware of the impact of child abuse, domestic violence, and PTSD. He also wants others to know that forgiveness is key. James currently lives a peaceful life in the Pacific Northwest with his wife, dogs, and nature.

The Boy In the Barn
by James Kramer

A beautiful family on the outside, but no one knew what was going on behind closed doors. He and his siblings suffered tremendous emotional and physical abuse of a sadistic father and an absent mother. He lost his baby sister at the hands of his father and retains the horrific memories of her death. James lived in a barn for most of his childhood and learned to survive the isolation and neglect. James became a deeply spiritual person, but his life was and still is, a challenging road as he overcomes the past in order to live.

Description


In this riveting autobiography, James Kramer describes his childhood and reminisces about both the happy and horrifying times. He and his siblings suffered tremendous emotional and physical abuse, and the loss of his baby sister still weighs heavy on his heart. Throughout the years, he has had people in his life that were "bright lights at the end of his tunnel". James kept moving forward, pushing onward and found that forgiveness was key. James was compelled to write his story to make others aware of chronic toxic stress, domestic violence, child abuse, and PTSD. He emphatically encourages others to avoid these toxic relationships at all costs and be alert to early signs of abuse. He still suffers from symptoms created so many years ago. With the grace of God, James continues to forge ahead. He perseveres.
