Book Review: One Pink Line

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.

One Pink Line is based on a very true story about a young woman who was faced with a difficult decision, and not much time to make it. The novel is fiction, but the people who inspired the story are very real.

I choose this book, because it sounded very different and I loved the cover, it's so pink, it catches you eye immediately. The moment I sat to read the book, I had no idea what it was about, I have completely forgotten about it. But that made it more interesting, it was like watching a movie without knowing what the movie was about, and yes that happens a lot to me.

Anyway, about the book:
The book travels you around three different decades, the mid-‘80s, ‘90s and our very own‘10s. We follow two points of view, Grace’s and Sydney’s. Sydney is our main character, the one who has many obstacles in her life and a real superhero, according to me. Grace’s role is a little obscure in the beginning. Her narrating helps us to complete Sydney’s image and make us sympathize her and admire her more.

The writing was amazing. Every time, I was transported into a different decade, a different life style and a different style, in general. The story was genius, it just proves that sometimes women can do so many things without men. I didn’t know it was a true story, but when I did, I thought that this story will stay in my mind for long after finishing the book. This strength is admirable.

I also liked the ending because it was really romantic and I liked that the author tells us only the important stuff and doesn’t suffocate us with many details and events. The things that she writes about are easy to be read and remember. And it was very smart too. The author was hiding things from us on purpose and that made the experience even better, I was starting to imagine the end and who is who.

Bottom line, I loved it. It shows how a woman can do so many things, such as raising a child on her own and still keep her sanity. I found it true and vivid and inspiring. It is totally different than what I've used to, but it totally deserved the try, and it didn't dissapointed me.
