"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."

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 give it 4 BITES!

Happy Reading!
