a tale of sexual abuse, survival and breaking free from the traumas of the past

Author Harry X. Winfield drew inspiration from a real-life story when he wrote “The Road to Rochelle” (published by AuthorHouse). This novel chronicles a tale of sexual abuse, survival and breaking free from the traumas of the past.

Eddie Hughes had been a victim of sexual molestation as a child. He met Georgia Vector in college to whom he built an intimate relationship. After 40 years, he met her again and only then did he decide to tell the secret of his perplexing childhood. In this book, readers will follow the journey of one remarkable man as he goes through dark times and comes out on the other side as a stronger, better person. It details the trauma caused by a harrowing experience that he carried with him until today. Telling this story somehow lifted the burden and set him free.

An excerpt from the book:
There were several moments of anguish during my search for you in which I sincerely felt I was raising the bar too high and moving into territory beyond the limits of dignity. The reward of written correspondence and a telephone conversation with you has extinguished those previous anxieties. It was difficult for me.

The Road to Rochelle” is based on a true-to-life story. It details how sexual abuse can haunt the victim throughout his life. It also underlines the resilience of the human spirit that can transcend and conquer the most harrowing of experiences.
