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 relishes a great love story, absorbing characters, and plenty of laughs along the way.

One Pink Line by Dina Silver Review
One Pink Line by Dina Silver-Adult Contemporary/Women's Fiction
Kindle format given by author for review
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.
