Nothing makes me happier than when a debut author has a hit right out of the gate. That's the case with Dina Silver and her debut novel ONE PINK LINE. The story is told from two points of view, which adds depth to the story. Sydney is a young college student who finds herself pregnant and facing the life changing choices that come with pregnancy. While Grace is a young daughter who is facing the truth of her conception and searching to find her identity within her new reality. The dialogue is compelling and the storyline rich. The characters are relatable and likable, which is a nice combination. Silver writes a story that addresses family dynamics, love in all forms, choices and honesty. The story is beautifully paced and you will find yourself at the end grateful to have have been witness to Sydney and Grace's journey. I highly recommend ONE PINK LINE!
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.
