From the author of One Pink Line comes a story about letting go of the past and finding bravery in the depths of fear. Set on the sun-soaked beaches of Thailand and the rough waters of the Indian Ocean, The Unimaginable paints a vivid portrait of a young woman on a journey to find herself—and her harrowing fight for survival.

I did appreciate the author's comments at the end of the book. This was a Kindle First offering, thank you.
It all begins with Jessica Gregory, a twenty-eight year old schoolteacher whose mother’s death is the catalyst for her wanting a change of scenery. Having lived under strict rules in a small community, she’s looking for adventure somewhere new. She takes a big risk and moves across the world to Thailand to teach ...more
After her mother's death, Jessica leaves her home in small-town Indiana and moves to Thailand to become a teacher. There, she meets a sailboat captain named Grant, very predictably falls in love with him, and spends about 10 pages in danger before everything is fine again.
As you can probably already tell, I really didn't like this book. For a book that starts out as this woman's journey to expand her ho ...more
I borrowed this through Amazon Kindle Unlimited.
I have been trying to write this review for sometime, unsure of how to express just how amazing this book truly is. So here goes.
I found The Unimaginable to be an incredible, emotional journey of a young woman setting out on her own for the first time in her life. This beautifully descriptive story had my full attention right away, making me want to know more about the lovely young woman ...more

This one sparked a conversation with my 14 year old son, which made it even better.
I feel enlightened and inspired. <3
Truly a hidden gem, this book was so intriguing. It was a little slow going at the beginning but once it really starts you can’t help be become hooked.
Jessica is the wanderlust sort, I don’t truly appreciate people like her but that is ok. She is following her dreams and her adventurous nature.
She meets two gentlemen Grant and Quinn on her journey and they all become friends. She has romantic feels for Grant, he just catches her eye unlike anyone has before.

This one started out promising. The main character is the same age as me, which doesn't happen very often in the books I read. So I thought that was cool. She leaves her small town life in Indiana to move to Thailand to teach. I love exploring books set in other countries, especially ones that I know I would most likely never get to visit in real life.

CAN I GIVE THIS BOOK 10 STARS? I went into this book completely blind, I didn't have the slightest idea what it was about, honestly it was a price I couldn't pass up so I thought I'd give it a try.
This books was gripping and suspenseful, I couldn't stop listening. The characters were all compelling and very strong, they each had their own completely different personalities and it worked so well! I think I laughed, I shed some tears, I smiled with pride and I smile ...more
Jessica leaves her small town simple life in the US and moves to Thailand to teach underprivileged children. There she rents a room from a retired American couple in their home, makes ...more
The Unimaginable is a story about a woman looking for color in her life and a guy running from his past. Adventurous, fast-paced, and beautifully romantic, Dina Silver had me on the edge of my seat with my heart frantically beating. One moment I was breathless from the romance and the next, I was breathless from the action-packed intensity. What a ride!
Jessica Gregory has lived her whole life doing what was expected. After losing her mother and then her job as a school teacher, s ...more
I received a copy of The Unimaginable by Dina Silver in exchange for an honest review.
Jessica decides against her sister's advice to move clear across the ocean from the United States to start a new life, take a risk and do something she never could imagine. Life is going well in Phuket, Thailand, she is slowly building a new life then one night Grant Flynn walks into the bar where she works and for Jes ...more
A beautiful cover and convenient timing left me in the mindset that The Unimaginable was going to be something like Station Eleven--not in topic, because the book summary made it very clear that this was nothing like Station Eleven, but for some reason I had it in my mind that this would have the same beautiful writing, construction, and love of life that Station Eleven contained. Unfortunately, this was not the case.
The story is about J ...more
