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.

Sweet Surprise...Love this book

Would you consider the audio edition of One Pink Line to be better than the print version?

I have not read the print version.

What other book might you compare One Pink Line to and why?

Not sure I have a comparison to this one, but I loved it.

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

Both were great....the narrator of Sidney was amazing and annimated but both were great.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed and cried in this book which is the best way to read. I loved how they switched between narrators.

Any additional comments?

Great book!!! I bought it on a sale but would not have been disappointed had I paid full price. Great Book!!

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.

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.

It all starts with a pregnancy test...

This has to be one of the cutest books I've ever read. That doesn't mean there wasn't plenty of struggle, conflict, and #allthefeels, because there totally was. But the overall feeling I have after finishing this book is satisfaction, happiness, and a grin slapped to my face.

Here we follow two stories, one present and one in the past. These two voices - Sydney's and Grace's - layer together brilliantly to weave a tale of identity, love, family, mistakes, sacrifice, and ultimately, forgiveness. It shows us how life molds us in different ways, and as much as we don't want to become our mothers, we often do :) It brings light to how we can sometimes take those who love us the most for granted.

I loved how Silver weaved humor through the sensitive and sometimes trying life experiences - certainly as Sydney finds herself pregnant just as she's graduating from college. I loved how she built each character to add to the story in their own way. I loved Ethan's calming viewpoint, and Sydney's passion for her daughter, and how her mother always told her to "be safe". I loved the alternating viewpoints, where you're not quite sure how the puzzle pieces will come together and then by the end it magically does.

"One drunken evening filled with passion, carelessness and Jagermeister."

For this to be my first Dina Silver book, I am hooked. A fantastic read - very apropos timing for how many pregnant friends I have in my life right now. I can't wait to pick up another book by this author.

I loved both narrators for this book - they did a fantastic job at bringing all the characters to life.

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.

Great read

I really enjoyed this book. I found it extremely difficult in the begging to concentrate on the two stories (so I had to cheat and find out how they were connected). To the person who doesn’t cheat - just do your best keeping them apart, and you’ll get it soon enough.

Amazing Story & Awesome Narration

I absolutely loved this book. The story is a fresh new story and the duly points of view make it even better. One Pink Line was very well written and both of the narrators did a fantastic job of making all the characters come to life.

The book was great, The voice of the mother was terrible

Whoever did the voice of Sydney's mother was rough. She also struggled with using expressions appropriately. Other than that, the book was great. I was able to power through the instances with annoying narration.
