Audio Book Summary

Twins David and Dennis Pischke's lives change forever when their father dies, and a man damaged by the war arrives at their farm near the isolated town of Moosehorn, Manitoba. Boleslaw Domko quickly works his way into their lives and their mother's bed.

Where Children Run opens with one of their earliest memories-the day Domko throws their infant stepsister against the wall. In this first-hand account, the Twins recall years of neglect, starvation, and enslavement; horrific beatings and candlelit nights spent in the nearby St. Thomas Lutheran Church. Neighbors intervene, but their efforts provide only temporary relief as the children's mother-also living in fear-refuses to press charges.

The brothers vow that if they survive, they will someday expose their tormentor and members of their mother's religious organization who turned a blind-eye to their suffering. This is their story-told with stark honesty and in heart-wrenching detail.

Where Children Run is a timeless, unforgettable book about survival; and a powerful testament to the strength and adaptability of the human spirit.

Contains mature themes.

    What an incredible story! I am so happy that the twins were able to finally tell their story for the world to hear. I’m honored to have known you and your siblings if only through words in a book. Thank you for sharing your shockingly brutal story. I hope that you have found peace in some sort of way.

    Oh my God. Brilliant and awful. I need Domco brought to my house. Just me and him. I am not maternal but these twins made me want to stand between them and that satanic hybrid step father of theirs. A weak and useless mother. Jehovah's Witnesses allowing the incredible abuse in the name of God. A social welfare system hopelessly inept. Sickening at times. I hope that these amazing, talented twins with such a good sense of humour have only happy days.
