"I am a sucker for historicals. I am also a sucker for women being able to move outside their traditional roles and not just succeed but excel. I am also a sucker for a happy ending. Lofty provided everything and more. Grade: A" ~ The Book Pushers
"His Very Own Girl is on my list of the best of 2012. I've loved other Carrie Lofty books. I've ranked them high on the power of the story, the complexity of the characters, and the grace of the prose, but even among an impressive volume of work, this one is special." ~ The Romance Dish
"From the first electric moment to chance meetings, these two found something special in a very chaotic and hard time." ~ Smexy Books
"Lofty has brought WWII to life with His Very Own Girl. Incredibly well written, this book will take you back...and cement Carrie Lofty's place as a must-read author." ~ Reading Between the Wines
From the Author
Female pilots from around the world flocked to Britain to "do their bit" with the Air Transport Auxiliary. Men declared F4--unfit for military service--were also welcome. These selfless civilians freed countless pilots from ferrying duties. The organization was the first British agency to offer equal wages for men and women, yet the ATA's contribution to the war effort has been largely forgotten.
So many men and women plunged into marriage when the world seemed destined for destruction. I hope this book does justice to the lovers and the unsung heroes of World War II.
