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.
A graduate of Purdue University, Dina Silver has spent the past fifteen years feeding her red wine habit by working as a copywriter in the advertising industry. After seeing the bulk of her professional prose on brochures and direct mail pieces, she is delighted to have made the transition to novelist. She currently lives with her husband and son in suburbia, where she is working on her next book. Inspired by a true story, One Pink Line is Dina’s debut novel.
Add One Pink Line to your Goodreads shelf:
Valentine’s Day. Two words that can instill either dread or mild dread in people. To be honest, I’ve never really been bothered by Valentine’s Day. In fact, I always thought it was a great opportunity to spread a little love to friends and family – albeit somewhat forced – but so what. Is it the worst thing to have a day once in a while where you’re obligated to tell people how much you love them? I mean, we’re talking once a year, people.
My husband and I never celebrate Valentine’s Day with much more than a bottle of wine and a nod of the head. But once I had my son, suddenly Valentine’s Day became a reason for me to shower him with holiday themed goodies! A really sweet, awesome pile of goodies that made him as giddy as I was buying them. Things like heart shaped pancakes, Valentine’s Day cards, Valentine’s Day stickers, stuffed animals with red and pink ribbons, socks with smooches on them, underwear with hearts on them, and pink frosted cupcakes with sprinkles. He learned early on that Valentine’s Day was a celebration of love. A day where you can speak from the heart and be free to share your feelings without reason.
So I guess maybe I am a fan of Valentine’s Day. Anyone who knows me knows that I’m a sucker for a great love story. So when I set out to write, I truly aim to please those readers, like myself, who crave a heart-pounding journey that leads to a happy ending.
And when I showed my son the cover of One Pink Line, in its bright pink, hearty splendor, he said, “It looks like Valentine’s Day, mom.” Yes it does.
