One Pink Line is yet another book thats been sitting on my kindle for over a year. Since I never made time to read it, I decided I would listen to the audio book. I was happy I did. I enjoyed this one.

This is not your typical romance. It’s a story of a girl and her first love, yes, but also a story of a mother and daughter. And the story of that daughter finding out who she is and where she belongs. I loved the family aspect. There was so much love between these three characters

What a lovely lovely story! This was quite different to a lot of books I've read lately. It wasn't a cut and dry romance.

There was romance, but this is so much more. It is about love on so many other levels too. Love between a mother and daughter, lost love, love denied, unrequited love, inconvenient love, sibling love, love between friends and ultimately, inevitable love...

One Pink Line was such an easy read. I reached the end without even realising! And the end was soooo adorable.

He laughed. "Don't I have any say?" He stood up. "Assuming it's even mine."

"It's yours."

*I was given a free copy of this book by the author in return for an honest review*

The synopsis of this book caught my attention because I was faced with the very scary reality of an unplanned pregnancy at a young age. The premise of the story is a good one, and the topics discussed are timeless in their relevance, but I walked away from this book feeling as if something were missing.

The strangest thing about this story for me were the similarities to my own situation. I had been in a committed

Have you ever read a book that reminded you to be grateful for the family that loves you? To appreciate just a bit more the sacrifices that your parents have made for you? To try and be a better daughter, sister, mother one day?

This is a story about love - not only the romantic type, but also between mothers and daughters and all the people we take for granted in our everyday lives. It is also a story of finding one’s identity, putting all the puzzle pieces together that make up the picture of w

I'll just get straight to it then. This book lacks the emotional depth that this topic demands of it. It does not do justice to the actual difficult heart-wrenching plight faced by young single mothers.

When reading The Pink line you feel like you are watching a W Channel movie- you observe the main character go from scene to scene without being emotionally invested or too interested. The author just gives you superficial description of event after event.

The plot was rushed and the characters,

I am so in love with this book I can't even put it into words. Dina Silver - you are amazing. I loved every single word of this book. I loved the two different points of view between Sydney and Grace and I just adored how it all came together. Beautifully written and just wonderful. One of my new favorite books of 2012.

This book really touched me. It's told from Sydney's POV and Grace's POV. Sydney is the mother and Grace is her daughter. I felt for both of them and could relate to each in different ways.

Sydney was likable to me. She makes mistakes and her behavior isn't always perfect. I appreciated the realistic situations that Sydney puts herself in. She had a really great boyfriend in Ethan. I mean, this guy is the real deal. BUT, I could understand where Sydney was coming from wanting to have some experi

Review to come... may not be a 5 star read for everyone. Will explain later.

Ready to review. First of all, I have a rating rule for myself. If a book/story brings out strong emotion in me, and I enjoyed the story through to the end, it will have at least 4 stars. If this emotional place is happens multiple times or multiple emotions are tapped, same thing - read to the end, then it will have at least 4.5 stars. I gave this book 5 stars b
I listened to the Audible version mostly, then went back to clarify some points in the Kindle version. I thought this book was pretty good, but then I got to the end and realized that somewhere along the way I had confused/merged Sidney and Grace's stories. The first clue should have been when I was thinking how odd it was that both got pregnant by losers named Kevin in college! Of course, they didn't. I had just managed to somehow merge Sidney and Gracie into one person. Once I got my head on s ...more

One Pink Line follows the stories of Sydney and Grace. The story begins with Sydney about to enter college. She’s found her true love, Ethan, and college is going to change the rest of her life. Will the distance tear them apart? Grace is a girl who has a loving, nuclear family. But she feels different to other girls–for one thing, she towers above her classmates. She begins to question who she is. Is there something about her she doesn’t know?


I love that we follow these ladies

I enjoyed One Pink Line by Dina Silver. Inspired by real life events, I was captivated by page one. This book wrecked havoc on my emotions and on my heart... I felt bad for Grace never knowing who her biological father was but her real and true father, who raised and loved her as his own from day one always had my heart. I was happy that that were a family in the end because that's who deserved it the most. I love Dina's writing!!

I really just loved this one. So many references to my childhood seeing as I grew up in the same area as Sydney. I can’t wait to read more from this author!

This was an incredibly moving read.

Sydney had the perfect boyfriend back home but, like many college coeds, she got restless (and drunk) and had a one-night-stand with a boy "friend" that resulted in a pregnancy. Sydney wants to keep the baby but the baby daddy wants nothing to do with either of them.

The author writes from both Sydney's perspective and Grace's (the baby). From Sydney's perspective, we see how she dealt with having a child at such a young age while unmarried and how it affected

I felt like I was reading a Lifetime movie,

The majority of the book took place in the early 1990s, and this book reminded me of the YA from right around that time period...not in a good way. The psychology of Sydney and Grace's every thought and action were explained. Every piece of dialogue sounded like it was coming from a therapist, not a teenager. Sydney seemed more emotionally affected by losing her boyfriend than by having a baby. In fact, her decision to keep the baby wasn't even a major

I got this book as a First Reads books and I'm so glad that I entered to win.

I really enjoyed this book, for a break out novel, the way that she configures the twits and turns of the book made me want to keep turning the page. There were times where the book moved a little slow (particularly points where she had to move past the boring introductions. There were some descriptors that she could have done without (such as half a page about insignificant characters lives before meeting Sydney). The

A beautifully interwoven story of a mother and daughter, the past and present, their choices and consequences. This is one of those books that leaves an indelible impression. A truly spectacular read!!
What an unexpected surprise this book was. I couldn't put it down! I am in love with Ethan. He couldn't be more perfect.

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:

I won this as part of a Goodreads First Reads Giveaways.

I don't read a lot of "chick lit," but I'm so glad that this one fell into my lap thanks to Goodreads and Dina Silver. This novel was so good at capturing the reader's attention and holding it until the very end. Coupled with an interesting storyline and clever presentation, I just couldn't put this one down. I absolutely loved the way the 2 separate stories overlapped and intertwined. Although I could figure out the connection from the beg
Dina Silver's One Pink Line was written a few years ago, but until yesterday, it was one of my greatest undiscovered reading treasures. This women's fiction gem has a feel of authenticity, of a real life experience, crafted with powerful, beautiful writing!

The pacing of this story is just about perfect, as Silver alternates between points of view of Sydney and Grace. I fell in love with many of the primary and secondary characters in this story - Sydney, Ethan, Grace, Mrs. Reynolds, Kendra, Nana
