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.

I have not read the print version.
Not sure I have a comparison to this one, but I loved it.
Both were great....the narrator of Sidney was amazing and annimated but both were great.
I laughed and cried in this book which is the best way to read. I loved how they switched between narrators.
Great book!!! I bought it on a sale but would not have been disappointed had I paid full price. Great Book!!
What a sweet listen! The story kept me engaged, I did extra chores just to be able to keep listening. Oh, and .....I love Ethan too!!
I LOVED this one. Wow. A really good story. Great narration!
This book was not a romance but a story about love and family.
High School senior Grace just had health class and they got to the Sex Education portion. They learned about conception and Grace got really confused. How is it that she was 2 years old and remembers her parent's wedding, if people were supposed to be married first? Also, she now realizes that she has different features from her dad, so much that she freaks out and the school nurse calls her mom.
Her mother Sydney has to tell Grace the story of how their family became a family and how her dad became her dad.
This story is told both from Sydney's perspective and Grace's perspective. It involves flashbacks too but it wasn't confusing at all, and it all ties in together nicely. Great story telling.
This book served it's purpose. A quick cheap read to get me through to a pre-order. You won't have to invest much thought or consideration, for the author didn't go to there either. It's depthless writing revolving a superficial woman that move from one drama to the next. I have a hard time believing this is based on an actual story.
It's not a bad book - The author just didnt invest in the effort to make it great. The characters were all a very beige vanilla. The great love - Ethan for Sidney was never given justice. Every single mother in this book would NOT have acted in the manner written.
I really enjoyed this book, I thought the author was very clever in weaving the story lines together. It was also interesting to hear the story from two different points of view, the mother who decided to keep her child, and a child who later finds out that her "real" father is not her biological father. The dialogue was very real and made me laugh out loud many times. The narrators both did a great job.
Sweet and simple story, easy quick listen. A little confusing when she jumped back in time the first time. There was no Segway and thought I had missed a whole chapter. Overall it was an enjoyable read.
Drew me in. Kept me engaged and well entertained during my commute time. Loved the way the two viewpoints were parallel, then brought together.
I loved this book! First, the performance was great and the narrators did a fabulous job with animation. I never once got bored and I did not want the story to end! It's a sweet story with a few twists and surprises but in the best way! It switches from two characters points of views multiple times but not once did I get confused.
I don't want to spoil anything but the realization of who Grace's father and then biological dad are. Not what I expected when I started the book.
I LOVED it!! I'm not much of a cryer during audio books but it's not a sad book either. Definitely lots of laughs and happy thoughts though!
Listen to this book! If it sounds even remotely interesting, it won't disappoint.
This is a great story and so real. I could put myself into the book.
There was one pink line.
I don't think I can pick one. They are both so great.
When she had to ask about her Father.
I was dissapointed in the author's casual treatment of the use of drugs, alcohol and hook-up sex. The plot promotes shallow morals with little consequence for irresponsible behaviors. A high school /college student making the choices Sidney did would rarely have such a "happy ever after" ending. Even the difficulties she experienced were not well developed and were quickly resolved. The only reason I chose to continue listening was to see if the story line became more realistic. It did not. I guess you get what you pay for when you buy an audio book for $3.95.
The audio performance was not a problem.
Too many problems with the story to even suggest changes.
It is sad to see that this type of novel gets published.
