Knoxville, TN

Deeply personal in topic and tone, author R. Bayuk's new book "A Thousand Forevers: A True Love Story" (published by Balboa Press) covers universal themes such as heartbreak, betrayal, unconditional love and forgiveness.

"A Thousand Forevers" is Bayuk's memoir - taken from the content of personal letters - about a secret love forbidden by society, which began in her childhood but was fostered by a lifelong relationship.

The author iterates within the book her lifelong search for her true self while learning valuable lessons from feelings of guilt and shame. All of Bayuk's personal trials helped her realize the meaning of unconditional love and commitment, she says.

"Unconditional love is found when one lives authentically through truth, taking responsibility for one's actions, facing their fears and accepting and expressing forgiveness," Bayuk says. "You cannot help who you fall in love with."

Bayuk hopes her book resonates with any reader who has been in love or had any kind of relationship. This book applies to many different situations, including marriages, divorces and other internal struggles, she says.
