♥♥♥♥♥ You Gotta Read This Book ♥♥♥♥♥
Can the love of a lifetime be forever changed by one pink line? Dina Silver’s tender, absorbing novel, One Pink Line, is the warmhearted, wry story of love, loss and family, as seen through the prism of one singular, spirited young couple who find themselves in a predicament that changes the course of their lives, and those closest to them. With heart, humor and compassion, this debut work of women’s fiction is certain to stir anyone who relishes a good laugh, can stand a good cry, and, above all believes in the redemptive power of love. This unique, contemporary story gives readers a dual perspective. Sydney Shephard, a sweet-tempered, strong-natured college senior is young, in love with an exceptional man, and unexpectedly pregnant. Faced with a child she never planned for, she is forced to relay this news to her neurotic mother, relinquish her youth, and risk losing the love of her life. Then there’s Grace, a daughter, who believed she was a product of this great love, grows to realize her existence is not what she assumed, and is left with profound and puzzling questions about who she really is. Spanning generations and every imaginable emotion, One Pink Line reveals how two points of view can be dramatically at odds, and perhaps ultimately reconciled. Simultaneously deeply felt and lighthearted, One Pink Line deftly mines how the choices we make are able to alter so many lives, and how doing the right thing and living honestly can bring unexpected, hard-won happiness. It’s a must-read for anyone who craves a great love story, absorbing characters, and plenty of laughs along the way.
One Pink Line is beautifully written and unique, as it’s told from both points of view–the mom and the daughter of an unplanned pregnancy. But what can I say about this book that’s not in the blurb above? Maybe that I woke up in the middle of the night thinking about One Pink Line. Thinking about not finishing it because I was afraid that Ethan would turn into the ‘bad guy’ and I couldn’t stand the thought of that. And wondering how things were going to turn out for Ethan, Sydney, and Grace. And not just once. My sleep was disturbed several times over the course of this reading. Yep, that’s probably all I have to offer, because One Pink Line is just what the blurb promises it to be– “tender, absorbing…warmhearted, wry story of love, loss and family…With heart, humor and compassion…certain to stir anyone who relishes a good laugh, can stand a good cry, and, above all, believes in the redemptive power of love. ” That about sums it up as good as it can be. I would like to add that Sydney is incredibly likable and it’s so easy to feel for her and the predicament that she finds herself in. Ethan is amazing. That’s all I can say. There should be more men like Ethan in the world. And Grace proves worthy of her name and shows herself at the end to be the product of her wonderful parents.
Dina has brilliantly captured all the love and support of three people who were meant to be together and rolled it all up into a fabulous story of forgiveness, hope, and family. Thanks, Dina! I can’t wait to see what you have for us next!
