BLOG TOUR: One Pink Line by Dina Silver + GIVEAWAY!


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--Goodreads

My POV

I love these kinds of stories! I get such a rush of feelings from such a true to life situation. This story is told in two different points of view. One from a mother’s and the other from the child’s (her daughter). I think this was a wonderful way to see two sides of a complex family dynamic. Plus, experiencing two different emotional struggles as truths unfold, mistakes and decisions are made literally took me from the highest of highs to the lowest of lows.
You can learn a lot of things from such a realistic contemporary novel. Like. A life changing mistake can make you stronger or break you; make you more independent or dependent. Depending on which path you choose. It can also make you appreciate what you have in your life and not take the people who truly love you unconditionally for granted.
The characters in this book were well developed and relatable. I fell in love with most of them and hated one to the depths of my soul because he was so cowardly. In the very beginning the back and forth between the different POV’s was a little disorienting but I soon caught on to what was happening and felt that this was a great way to see this story unfold.
The love story between Sydney and Ethan is so natural and beautiful. The best thing about it is that it’s not all perfect with sunshine, flowers and rainbows. I think that is what make is so relatable. Because none of us are perfect and to see that there is still hope even if thing don’t work out as predicted just makes this story that much more wonderful.
I didn’t hesitate to give this book a five star rating once I was done reading. Due to the emotional range, subject and executions it is one of the best books I’ve read. If you’re looking for a book that will make you cry, make you laugh, make you think and make you hope. This is the book for you!
