One Pink Line | [Dina Silver]

One Pink Line

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.

Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "Love of family"

    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.

    Story
    "Won't Find This on LaLeche League's Top 10 List"

    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.

    BOOK REVIEW: 5++ STARS

    I bought this book and audiobook last year and every time I was scanning on my unlistened audios I always said: I want this one (One Pink Line) but something always happened (Bloggers duties most of the time) and I always ended up postponing it. But last week, I was heading work and my phone #1 was dead so I decided to listen one random audiobook in phone #2 and guess what I downloaded? *chuckles* I liked the first 4 chapters I listened that day but I had to finish other audio, so I decided to put it on hold until the weekend and guess what? It was the best decision ever, because I was a little confused with the narration and the reviews I saw in goodreads, and to be honest I almost decided to DNF, but I didn't. Thank God I didn't because this book taught me so much about life, right decisions, sacrifices, true love, parenthood and daughterhood.

    This book is two stories: Sydney’s and Grace’s. Sydney’s a young woman that when she’s finishing college, she got pregnant and everything she had planned for her life changes. And Grace is a teen who finds out the truth about her parents and that changes her perspective of life, and in one way or another, defines the woman who she becomes at the end of the book.

    I felt so close to this story because of the way my life started. It made me think of all the sacrifices my mother had to do for me, all the changes she had to make in her life to give me the life she thought I deserved and then it made me feel blessed for having the best mother in the world. It also made me think of my dad, I didn't have any contact with him until I was 21 years old and up until I read this book. I never thought how much I missed him while I was growing up. I think Grace was so lucky to have such amazing parents, and I was so happy at the end when she told her dad how much she loved him.

    “I love you, Dad.”
    “Love you, too, Gracie.”

    I admired Sydney for being so mature, for making the right decisions for her own sake and the baby she was going to have. Her love story with Ethan was so beautiful but also heartbreaking. He was so right for her, from the beginning I knew they were perfect for each other. I loved reading how their relationship was growing throughout the years.

    You all need to read this amazing story. 100% recommended!

    AUDIOBOOK REVIEW: 4 STARS

    Amy McFadden , Cristina Panfilio did great in their narrations. Perfect for their character’s POV.

    Remember I told you that I downloaded the audiobook in my phone #2 And that I almost did not finish this book? Well, it was all phone #2’s fault! I usually use the Audible app, and I don't have it in the second device, so I used the audio companion of the kindle app and it was skipping the chapter names, whose chapter it was (Grace or Sydney) and I was so confused with that. But when I resumed listening to it at home, with the ebook in hand to read, everything was very clear.

    "The ending is the best, worth the read!"
    Would you listen to One Pink Line again? Why?

    Sure, If i liked to listen to books multiple times.


    What about Amy McFadden and Cristina Panfilio ’s performance did you like?

    Their voices are so alike I could tell the difference but they did a great job with this book.


    Any additional comments?

    Really cute read. The book itself was well written, mostly interesting but the ending was the selling point. I loved the ending. Good book to pass some time.

    "Very Clever Story"
    Any additional comments?

    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"

    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.

    What made the experience of listening to One Pink Line the most enjoyable?

    Drew me in. Kept me engaged and well entertained during my commute time. Loved the way the two viewpoints were parallel, then brought together.
