About this title


...and there was light seeks to expose the devastation of childhood sexual abuse, and its ripple effects through the life of a victim, from childhood, to adulthood; from relationships to career choices and from failure to success. It is a personal account by an overcomer, one who has discovered hope, and who has made his way back to wholeness. It is a vivid, uncompromising account of a broken life, twisted and damaged by the evil of childhood sexual abuse. With relentless honesty, the author describes not only the devastation he suffered, but the devastation he caused in the lives of those around him. This is not a clinical work compiled from notes; from the observation of victims in a therapeutic environment. This is one man’s story. Gifted with accurate recall, and clear insight, the author has explored the many wounds, insecurities and fears that his experience of abuse created, and also the coping mechanisms that ensured his survival in a world he no longer understood or felt safe in. Unlike many, however, the author was privileged to find his way back home, and in this work he explores the many ways to healing that he has found. It is focussed on redemption, and restoration, and offers hope to survivors that they too can be overcomers, and can begin their own journey back to wholeness.

About the Author:

Luka Vaughan writes as a husband, and as a father of 4 beautiful children. After university, where he qualified as a lawyer, he moved into Human Resources and has travelled extensively around the world as an HR Practitioner. He ran his own business consultancy for many years, working as a business and culture transformation specialist. In this time he discovered the limitless potential of the human heart and its capacity to rise above its own circumstances, and began to be inspired for his own journey. After time spent working in the Middle East, he settled with his young family in Wellington, New Zealand. Passionate for their innocence and for their lives to be filled with unrestrained joy, Luka began to work through the pain of his own past both to understand, and then to heal. In an effort to be the best father he can be and the best husband he can be, he has been relentless in seeking his own restoration. Luka has laid his life bare in these pages with brutal honesty. It is his hope that by exploring this journey with unrelenting candour, he can contribute to greater awareness and greater empathy for the heroes who walk amongst us as survivors of childhood sexual abuse; and to protecting the innocence of children everywhere.
