Book Club Friday: One Pink Line

Today, I'm linking up with one of my favorite baby mama's, Heather from Blonde Undercover Blonde for Book Club Friday!

This book?  Was fabulous.
I got completely sucked into the story in a way I haven't in a long long time.

From Amazon:

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 craves a great love story, absorbing characters, and plenty of laughs along the way.

Y'all, I love me some good chick lit.
An easy read, with some characters I can get emotionally invested in - is that too much to ask?!
This delivered, and then some.

The author only has one other book out right now, and while the plot's not really calling out to me, I hope she'll come out with another book soon!

Bonus?  It was only $2.99 for Kindle!
(And still is, for now!)

What are you reading right now?

First off, love how you describe yourself in your header as overthinking your way through life. Um....totally me! Second, this book sounds adorable!

I've seen this one recently, but couldn't decide if I wanted to try it! I think I will. Thanks for sharing!

Read it last night after seeing it here. It was good - I enjoyed it, quick read, and you do get sucked in. HATED how it ended so abruptly.

I picked this up last week after your review and started reading it today. I am already sucked in. Can't wait to get home so I can keep on. :)
