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.
What they're saying about it:
"I couldn't put this book down. I read it in less than 24 hours and when I wasn't reading it, the characters were still with me (at work, carpools, etc). I found myself rooting for Sydney,admiring her strength and honesty. I love getting lost in a book and Dina Silver successfully grabbed me with her poignant story of tough choices, ones that many of us could have been faced with in our lives. I can't wait for her second book."
"For anyone longing for a true love story, this book really delivers. At times hilarious, at times painful, the story takes you on the rollercoaster ride through a young woman's struggle with a very difficult decision. Dina Silver puts you into her main character's shoes and forces you to ask yourself, "What would I do?" And though I cannot answer that question for you, I do know that you will fall in love with Sydney's courage, Ethan's smile and Grace's strength."
