      3.5/5; 4 stars; B+This story is a romance set during the final year or so of WWII. More than that, it provides a window into a tumultuous time of change, not only for the world, but for men and women and their traditional roles. The world was set on its ear in so many ways. I enjoyed the developing relationship between Lulu and Joe and the way they worked through the rather monumental obstacles they faced in opposition to their chances of a future. There is so much more to this book than the rom [...]

    • Cathy says:

      Nothing wrong with this book, really, but somehow I didn't connect to Joe and Lulu at all. Something about the writing wasn't working for me, which means that I never really felt their spark like I should have. And the book dragged because I didn't feel it. As a result, I had to force myself to get through this and was consequently annoyed at myself for having to be forced, because I'd actually been looking forward to reading this one for a good while now.I just found Joe to be so infuriatingly [...]

      I am having an inner major muppet flail right now for this setting and premise of this book and I BLOODY adore the cover!Full Review to be posted soon:Wonderful sweeping romance which was full of rich detail and authentic tone. Although the first half was a bit slow in the pacing and I did get frustrated by the characters because they placed emotional barriers with each other over the romance - I really enjoyed the book, and I was totally immersed in the story and romance.

      This entire review may be found at Dear Author.Dear Ms. Lofty,I put off writing this review. Had I written it right after finishing His Very Own Girl, I’d have nattered on and about the importance of abandoning partisan politics and working together for a greater good. But, once I calmed down and stopped bawling–His Very Own Girl is a surpassingly affecting novel–I realized I don’t have to beseech anyone to do anything other than read your book. Its leads are Lulu, a pilot for the Eng [...]

    • heidi says:

      The central conflict of this romance was not class, kidnapping, arranged marriage. No one is surprise!pregnant. This is a book about two people working their way through World War II. Joe is a reluctant paratrooper medic, and Lulu is delighted to be ferrying planes around where they need to go.They have an acknowledged mutual attraction, but Lulu is wary. She has been badly burned by the psychological damage the war has caused, and so she has a one-night-only policy. Joe has a dark secret that m [...]

    • Alexia Chantel says:

      Lofty has brought WWII to life with His Very Own Girl. Incredibly well written this book will take you back and make you feel like you are living it. This only cements Carrie Lofty’s place as a must read author.His Very Own Girl brings together Lulu and Joe, two people who will not give their hearts away because of past hurts and regrets. They meet in a horrifying fashion, and maybe because of it the connection that forms between them is even stronger. They run into each other time and time ag [...]

    • Barb in Maryland says:

      Well, hooray! a book by Carrie Lofty that I actually like. And I liked it a lot.Set during WWII, it features a British woman pilot and an American Army medic embedded in a paratrooper regiment. Joe and Lulu seem to be an unlikely couple. She has sworn off romance and he is so prickly because of his past; it is a wonder they connect at all. Add in that she loves to fly and it proud of contributing to the war effort and he's a traditionalist who is shocked and appalled by women putting themselves [...]

    • Ruthie Knox says:

      I have very mixed feelings about this book. I applaud Lofty for the depth of her research and for the fact that she didn't simply write a romance with a little war sprinkled in it. This is a romance set during a period of total war, and the war and romance are deeply intertwined. That makes it difficult to read -- for me, it was difficult not just at the black moment, but a great deal of the time. And that's one reason it troubled me. It didn't feel as escapist as I wanted it to, for a romance. [...]

    • Kylie says:

      What an emotional ride. To think what those poor men and woman went through, what our hero's of war go through today, Its heart retching. His very own girl Is a beautifully written romance surrounded by fact. The details are so precise and explained In such detail, one feels transported back In time. Much of this journey, through history brought tears to my eyes, I found myself soaking In every word, the emotions written out across the pages gripped me to the core, more than once I had to put It [...]

    • Kate says:

      4.5 stars! It was really good, I really enjoyed this book! I also really liked both main characters, which goes a long way into making a decent book great. Even though Joe was so old-fashioned (which I sometimes find annoying in male lead characters), I enjoyed watching his character develop and grow.The author did an excellent job with this one! :)

    • Carrie says:

      4.5* Due to the holidays I couldn't review this immediately and now find I'm too far away from it to do it justice. I'll simply say I loved the book. The characters were much more real than most novels. Just read it. I don't think you'll be disappointed!

    • Cait says:

      Yessss I loved this. It was just SO GOOD. WW2 is just one of those time periods that I LOVE in fiction & this was really good and I felt like it was a believable account of what it was like, all of it.

    • Susan says:

      Just to be upfrontI didn't finish this book so take this review with a grain of salt. This time period is one of my favorites to read about. Unfortunately, I just couldn't get into it. It was very slow to start and I found myself going days without reading. Finally, I stopped trying.

      2.5 stars. Very cool setting.

    • Sandy M says:

      I’m very glad this book is as good as it is. I was given a PDF for my Kobo, but from the very beginning, for some reason, I had problems every other page with the document lining up properly on my reader, requiring me to page over numerous times to continue reading. Then three-quarters of the way through, my reader died. Kaput. No functionality whatsoever. Any other book that hadn’t given me such likable characters, a unique story line, a romance for the ages, or couldn’t kept my interest [...]

    • Sophia says:

      When I was a kid, I used to sit with my dad and watch 'war' movies. I confess that my child mind did wander on occasion and I missed quite a bit of the movies, but as I got older and saw those same old movies yet again they took on more significance. I watched such movies as Big Red One, Twelve O' Clock High, D-Day (yes the whole thing)and the like. I know that in recent years war movies made a resurgence, but I confess that I don't have the stomach for that much authenticity with the exception [...]

      Reviewed for Confessions From RomaholicsTo see review at ConfessionsIn her latest book, Carrie Lofty takes on WW2 and writes a story that fans of her writing will love and I fully expect there will be new fans of this author by the time this book is released and people spread the world. Lulu Davis is an ATA (Air Transport Auxiliary) pilot, a British civilian air force open to all women and men who are declared F4—unfit for military service. Since the death of her parents, and only a few months [...]

      Review posted at Books to Brighten your MoodI don't think that in my review of His Very Own Girl I'll say about Carrie Lofty something that I haven't already said. The woman is brilliant! Simple as that. It's not that her stories are always amazing (which they are) or perfect or I don't know, it's the fact that as an author, Carrie Lofty has that certain quality that defines her, that separates her and her writing style so that you could probably recognise her work, without knowing that it belon [...]

    • Francesca the Fierce (Under the Covers Book Blog) says:

      This review was posted at Under the Covers When I first saw this book I thought "Wow I don't think I've read anything in fiction centered around this era". This might just be because of the lack of romance novels that want to tackle such a sad time but I've watched more than my share of movies. They are always the hardest stories to read/watch and they especially tug at the strings of my heart. That being said, Ms. Lofty captured the time with precision and emotion. Reading HIS VERY OWN GIRL was [...]

      This review can also be viewed on Book Boudoir-BEGIN REVIEW-Llllllllloved it.-END REVIEW-OK ok I'm kidding. Well. Mostly, I'm kidding.His Very Own Girl is the first WWII book I've read. Now that I think about it, I don't think I ever read a WWI plotted book either. I'm usually a Victorian or Edwardian era romance reader. I'd never really thought about that before now.Anyway, it was really fun to see this different world that was so craftily created. Probably one of my favorite parts about the en [...]

    • Janga says:

      When I finished this book and prepared to move on to something else, I felt disoriented, as if I had returned from a long journey and had to allow myself time to feel at ease again in the place I belong. From the large details to the smallest ones, Lofty immerses her reader in the World War II setting. The mindsets of the characters, the rationing of food, gas, and soap, the music that plays as clearly as a soundtrack in the reader’s head, the language in all its variety, the physical and emot [...]

    • Elizabeth says:

      This book had this misfortune of being sandwiched between two books by Carla Kelly, one of my more favorite historical romance writers. In comparison, and it’s hard not to compare when reading books in succession, this book and the story just felt clunky. I picked it up because it’s set in England during closing years of World War II and tells the tale of a British woman who’s also a civilian pilot ferrying supplies for the British Armed forces and an American medic who’s stationed brief [...]

    • Sandi Layne says:

      I really enjoyed this book. I have recently written a short story that takes place during WWII so I greatly appreciated the work that goes into researching this time period to make it authentic. Lofty's hero, Joe Weber, is written very true to his time and I utterly appreciated it. Nothing tends to get my goat worse than someone in an historical fiction who doesn't sound time-appropriate. Well done, Author! Joe is strong - his physical presence is mentioned often - and charming but also controll [...]

    • Vibeke says:

      I've been lazy about reviewing books lately, but I had to make an exception for this amazing novel. An historical romance set during WWII, it's the story of British civilian pilot Lulu and American paratrooper Joe, and their long and complicated journey to a happily-ever-after. I felt completely immersed in the time period--the author had me convinced with well researched events, locations, and characters that stayed true to their time in behavior, thoughts and speech. The unusual setting of WWI [...]

    • Katie says:

      This was very, very well-done. The historical authenticity is ASTOUNDING. I'm not someone who nitpicks every off detail when it comes to historicals, but this makes me think maybe I should! Because when care is given to the time period, it's AMAZING. I don't know. Maybe it's just the the 19th century romances are too familiar for both reader and writer, but ohhhhhh. This made me feel like I really was in that time period. And that's just amazing.I thought the characters were well done, too. Like [...]

    • PointyEars42 says:

      DNF at 26.3%. I wanted to enjoy this but I was too irritated to read any further - this really intriguing book about a female pilot during WWII is continually being interrupted by some dull little romance with a man who is nowhere near interesting enough to be a match for her. I can see thtt that he'll have a rags-to-uniformed-glory arc, but a fifth into the book sees him being nothing but a pretty face who just happened to be in the right place to get noticed. Everything about her is calling to [...]

    • Fedora says:

      Amazing read.I loved Lulu and Joe's characters and Carrie Lofty really made the WWII elements so real as well. I found myself teary eyed more than once, with the descriptions of their heartfelt emotions and self-revelations.And shortly after my read by happenstance, our family toured a Liberty ship and there was quite a bit on board that described WWII, etc. I think in part because His Very Own Girl made such an impression on me, I was nearly bawling over so much of what we read and learned. Tha [...]

    • Nikki Levek says:

      This book was stunning!It was like walking through war torn England with such rich descriptions, historically accurate facts, and beautifully drawn characters. Ms. Lofty obviously has a wealth of knowledge about the era, as well as a deep and abiding love. I would love to see more from the WWII era, especially from Carrie Lofty. With a grandfather that fought at Anzio (mentioned in the book), a husband that teaches history, and my own library of historical books on the time period- I was amazed [...]

    • Brigid says:

      I feel like I never properly connect to Carrie Lofty books. They are very well written with real feeling characters with believable conflicts who come together in interesting ways but I can't get past the distance. I loved the time period and the characters but for me this book dragged. I understood why it took so long for the characters to connect but I couldn't sympathize with them and wanted to skip to the end. Still Lofty is a wonderful writer and all the pieces are there even if it didn't w [...]
