One Pink Line- Dina Silver

BLURB: 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.

My Review:   Written from different perspectives, One Pink Line is 

filled with drama, well crafted characters that are easily to re 

late to, and fast paced.  Dina Silver has created a powerful and 

poignant story that is sure to touch the readers in a strong way.

  It focuses on various relationships, and how they are affected 

by a dramatic change in one's life.  Sidney is young and faces 

quite a challenge.  It's sometimes confusing going from one 

point of view to another, so readers will have to pay close 

attention. There's a few things that weren't fully explained, but 

overall the story grabbed me, kept my attention and was a very 

moving read.

Interestingly enough, one of my biggest weaknesses is actually the thing that helps me stay motivated. Simply put, I have no patience. In the same regard, I’ve never been a huge procrastinator. So when it comes to writing, I find that I’m almost too eager to get to the end. If I have the story in my head, I tend to write a lot all at once, and then go through and edit. Sometimes I need to purge the ideas onto paper (well, cyber paper) before I can relax and begin to piece things together.

I’d also like to attribute one of my favorite clichés to the motivation mix. Follow your dream. Ah, yes…dare to dream. The reason I love this saying is because I’m always telling to people to do so with one caveat. That is, when people tell you to follow your dream and never give up, they don’t simply mean that you should keep hoping and wishing for your dreams to come true. Nope (sorry Oprah and The Secret). When people who have been rewarded success tell you to follow your dream, what they really mean is: don’t stop working your butt off until you get what you want.

Getting what you want in life can be enough of a motivator of you let it. Because once you start inching closer to your goals and believing that they truly might be attainable, there will be no stopping you!

Now if I only had the motivation to finish this post! J

Until next time,
