Overview

Can the love of a lifetime be forever changed by one pink line?

With heart, humor, and compassion, Dina Silver’s debut novel of love, loss, and family 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, modern story gives listeners a dual perspective. Sydney, 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, her daughter, who believes she is a product of this great love, but 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. Simultaneously deeply felt and lighthearted, it deftly mines how the choices we make can alter so many lives, and how doing the right thing can bring unexpected, hard-won happiness. It’s a must-listen for anyone who relishes a great love story, absorbing characters, and plenty of laughs along the way.

This book really touched me. It's told from Sydney's POV and Grace's POV. Sydney is the mother and Grace is her daughter. I felt for both of them and could relate to each in different ways. Sydney was likable to me. She makes mistakes and her behavior isn't always perfect. I appreciated the realistic situations that Sydney puts herself in. She had a really great boyfriend in Ethan. I mean, this guy is the real deal. BUT, I could understand where Sydney was coming from wanting to have some experience before settling down. I was so heartbroken over Ethan. Seriously, he was the perfect guy. He truly loved Sydney and made sacrifices to be with her. Such a special guy. Unfortunately, she makes one big mistake, that alters her life forever. That's where Grace comes in. Grace learns that her father isn't her biological dad. So, her journey begins of finding out who she comes from. I liked that we got to see her deal with this over time. What I loved the most was that she still felt like her adoptive father was her real dad. Even though it was a shock, I felt that she dealt with it all with maturity and well...grace. There were many times throughout the book that I was on the verge of tears. At the end, I was full out sobbing. They were happy tears though. I felt that everyone achieved the closure they all needed. One Pink Line touched my heart and I would highly recommend it. If you are looking for a sweet, loving story, this is a great book for you.

I really enjoy a story that spans generations. As I started this books, I was anxious to see what these two women are going to through. The affects of choices made and what comes to pass them really had me intrigued. What I enjoyed most about this story are the great characters. Both characters face situations in their life's that leaves them searching for answers. I really liked how the author let the reader get a good feel for the characters. It was easy for me to see into their minds, emotions, and actions. At the heart of the story their is a great friendship that blooms into a love. I really loved that part. To see two people despite the choices they made, truly love and forgive each other, made me smile. I also really loved that their romance didn't blooms over night but overcame so many obstacles. They were friends first, supported each other as friends, and then they loved! My only gripe about this book is that some of the point of view switches were are smoothly as I wanted them. At times, I got confused cause all of the sudden, I was reading someone else's line that wasn't what I was reading before. It wasn't till I read a little further that I would figure out who pov I was reading. Other than that, the book was good. One Pink Line leaves a warm glow in your heart. It is romantic and realistic about relationships, but also capturing a pure, enduring love.

I quite enjoyed this novel. It took me a few chapters before I really became interested, but once I got to that point, I didn't want to stop reading because I wanted to find out more about the details of the main character's situation.

This book is about Sydney Shepard who has a one night stand with a college friend and the consequences that follow from that night. She becomes pregnant and tries to make amends with her high school boyfriend that she still has feelings for. This book is told from the point of view from Sydney and her daughter Grace. Grace also suffers the consequence from her mother¿s one night stand where she was conceived. The story is a flashback to Sydney¿s past especially when Grace starts to question about her biological father. Sydney marries when Grace is two years old and Grace grows up to know Sydney¿s husband as her father even if he isn¿t her father biologicaly. This is a tale about how a couple¿s actions where one thinks that no one gets heart has consequences for their loved ones even long after that action. The author does not reveal who Sydney marries until the end of the book, though she does hint at his identity.

Please take the time to read it!

One Pink Line did it all for me, It made me laugh, cry, and I fell in love with the characters!! Sydney meets the love of her life Ethan when she's only in high school, and the two are completly inseperable until they go off to two seperate colleges, they make it through almost to the very end of their senior year though, until Sydney goes to a Frat Party and circumstances lead her to have a one-night stand with one of her best friends. When Sydney finds out she's pregnant, and that her friend wasn't who she thought he was, will Ethan and her relationship be damaged forever? I couldn't put this book down, I found myself so invested in the characters and in the storyline that I kept wanting to turn the page, and the whole book felt fast-paced like that for me. I loved Sydney and Ethans' characters, and Ethan is completly swoon-worthy! yum yum! lol I like that the story read almost like a YA novel because other then Chick-Lit that's been my go-to genre for a while now. I like that the story starts with Sydney in High School and ends after her completing college, It felt relatable to me because of the age group. I love how the two different points of view Sydney and Grace come together, and this book is one of very FEW that made me cry, I don't know what it was but the relationship between Ethan and Sydney felt so real to me that the phone call towards the end with Syd and Ethan made me lose it. If you love YA, contemporary, and /or Chick-lit, or are just a girl in general, I know you would love this book. Its bound to hold some relatability to anyone who's ever been in relationships, made mistakes, and tried to piece their lives back together again. I absolutely loved this story. A+ Dina Silver!!

The story being shared by both Sydney and Grace¿s point of view was amazing. I could not put the book down. I went through all of the emotions with the characters. Hating Kevin, admiring Ethan¿s big heart and all of the other emotions. I was so pulled in by this book that I caught myself dreaming about them. I am really looking forward to Dina¿s next book.

Author: Dina Silver Published by: CreateSpace Age Recommended: YA - Adult Reviewed By: Arlena Dean Book Blog For: GMTA Rating: 5 Review: "One Pink Line" by Dina Silver was full of romance and family saga contemporary read that was indeed enjoyable. It was a little predictable to me but it still was a good read that kept me reading till the end. I will say it's about a young lady who makes a mistake, ends up pregnant and her life choices she will have to live with. "One Pink Line" could be a very real novel due to the excellent work of this author you are able to see into the minds and emotions of the two main characters. "One Pink Line" presents a story of Sydney and Grace's intertwining journey toward love, loss, acceptance, second chances and redemption." This author provides you with a good detailed description of both of these characters journeys. Be ready to many twist and turns that will only keep you interested as you continue turning the pages wanting to know what will happen next in their lives and OMG was a surprise at the end. It will be a emotional read. You will laugh and maybe even cry from it all! You will find from "One Pink Line is a heartwarming novel that deals with life's experiences, though choices made, lessons learned and the power of redeeming and enduring love" and I would definitely recommend to all YA's.

I would like to thank ATOMR Blog Tours for allowing me to be a part of this tour. I have to say that One Pink Line was a roller coaster read for me. Told in a dual point of view I loved reading the mother's point of view and then the daughter's point of view. Sydney had it all. She is a senior in college and has the best boyfriend ever. She has friends and is living the college life. That is until she is in her senior year and her and her boyfriend are doing the long distance dating. Not sure if this is what she wants she goes out to a party where she makes the biggest mistake of her life. She has the drunken sex with her friend and becomes pregnant. When she tells him things start to go south plus she needs to tell her boyfriend back home. What is a girl to do? Then you hear from Grace who is Sydney's daughter. She is a teenager and going through all her teenage things like boys, school and hormones. As Grace tells her story you get to see where Grace has to make decisions like her mother had to when she was that age. Boys, friends and family are all at the forefront for Grace and she will have to work through these issues. This story tugged at my heart so much because when a girl gets pregnant her life changes but the boy never has to change. He will either be there or he will not. What happens to Sydney and Grace is a wonderful story I love and the ending was the best ever!

I loved this book. It follows Sydney as she finds herself unexpectedly pregnant right before graduating from college. Later it changes to Sydney's daughter Grace's point of view and how she is coping with finding out her mother was not married when she born nor was she still with her father. It was cute and sweet. It had a very predictable quality to it but in the best possible way. Great job, Dina!

I love that we follow these ladies through years of their lives, as they face troubles and grow up. One Pink Line feels like reading two people's lives written in a book. Dina Silver does an impeccable job of creating a story that builds and builds in tension until you don't have a choice but to read it as fast as you can so you can finally get some sleep. You know you've read a great novel when you think of the message and its themes days after you've finished reading. I'm lucky to have read Dina Silver's novel. It's given me a lot to think about regarding youth pregnancy, and family and friend relationships. One Pink Line is a truthful story about how loves sprouts, develops and lives on. Not only will this book stay with you for long after you close the pages, but it will also catch you by your collar and squeeze tighter until you finish the story.
