One Pink Line by Dina Silver - 260 pages
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.
My Review: 3 stars
This is not a genre I read often and it was a welcome break after the past few books I’ve read that had a large amount of abuse in them. A light read that focuses on Sydney, a college girl who has the perfect long distance boyfriend, an ideal post grad job, yet a drunk one night stand with a friend leaves her with the title...One Pink Line. This book alternates points of view between Sydney and how she deals with her surprise pregnancy and her daughter who struggles with finding her birth father. Set in Chicago, where the author resides, was a bonus for me. It was evident she knew the city as well as the surrounding North Shore suburbs. Quick read that you can soak up in a few hours.
