    1 thought on “A Tempest Soul”

    1. Intense and gritty. A tempest soul is a tale of passion, a story of a woman, a virtual nobody who raises herself from obscurity to dizzy heights. Two thumbs up!

    2. TBHOS BOOK REVIEWSA Review by Nicole S. AvilesA Tempest Soul by Oliver PhippsWhen thinking of one word to define this read, over and over again the same simple word comes to mind: different. A Tempest Soul is unique. The book opens introducing us to its young, naïve, and lovely protagonist: Gina. Gina is basically an orphan by her teenage years with a deceased father and Mother who’s abandoned her. Immediately, one feels empathetic towards the character, which should always be a goal for the [...]

    3. See the full review on Katie's CornerWow! This book was just amazing! It was the first time I have read a book by Oliver Phipps, and I believe it will not be the last one. The book has a lot of emotions woven into it. It tells a story of a woman who had nothing and then climbed to her success with her power and determination.The book has really string characters, especially Gina – the main character. I cheered on her all the way though out the book. I was screaming at her (in my mind) in the b [...]

    4. I'm gonna keep this review short and simple. This book was beautiful. I loved how Gina's character built upthroughout the book. You can say I fell in love with this book. I fell in love with the idea of a naive girl from Jacksonville becoming a sassy and confident woman in the end. I fell in love with the passion of dancing Gina/Serena and her adoptive mother Olivia had. I fell in love with every character in this book (except Paco and the guys in the beginning). I also liked the writing style. [...]

    5. Oliver Phipps's novel has been recommended to me by a friend who read it and absolutely adored it. As such, as she had never led me astray before, I decided to heed her advice and purchase the novel. I could not be happier that I did so. A Tempest Soul is a wonderful coming of age story that allows the reader to root for the person whom fate seems to hold in disfavor, in comparison to other novels where the protagonist has luck on their side. Gina is a character to whom the reader can elate, a c [...]

    6. A Tempest Soul is one of the best books I’ve read this year – another of the best being Oliver Phipp’s book Twelve Minutes Till Midnight. Mr. Phipps is a talented and diverse writer, and manages to write his female protagonist, Gina, with remarkable depth, narrating her multi-faceted life with great emotion. He writes her journey around the world and across our hearts as she faces a plethora of challenges, not the least of which is patriarchal oppression. Perhaps my favorite part of the bo [...]

    7. What incredibly creative and unexpected turns this story takes! I really enjoyed taking this daring and adventurous journey with Gina who seemed destined for a simple life and, through unfortunate events, ends up living what many of us only dream of. A fantastic lesson in turning lemons into lemonade - and how struggle and devastation can bring out our strength and determination. Loved the story, the characters, and the ending (without giving anything away) was very satisfying!

    8. I liked this book. The pacing was fast and the prose a little mechanical, but the storyline was interesting. There were parts of the book where the plot challenged my sensibilities, but those transgressions can be overlooked by the powerful central theme that evolved from how a poor, uneducated and abandoned girl from the Deep South in 1920’s developed a relationship with flamenco dancing that ultimately helped her to resolve her inner conflicts. All in all, this book is a thumbs up.

    9. I was suggested by one of my friends to read A Tempest Soul because of a splendid story. After reading, it goes beyond my expectation. While reading all the characters seemed to me real. The character named Gina was very interesting to me. Thanks Oliver Phipps for these types of master piece writing.

    10. A very sweet story of passionr the danceI really liked this book. I really love flamenco dancing and music so I feel this is a very interesting story. I highly recommend this book.

    11. Engaging, well-written book with intriguing unusual characters and twists, with unexpected connections revealed. This book is an awesome read. I loved how the author (Oliver Phipps) kept me intrigued with every turn of the page.Can't wait to see what's next. I give this book 5 stars easily.

    12. Another goodread from Oliver, this time it's a story set in '20s told through the eyes of Gina Falcone, an orphan determined to survive and find her destiny. Great storytelling, amazing adventure, this is a perfect movie material!

    13. Great read keeps you guessing and intrigued about what's going to happen next. Every time I put it down I had to pick it right back up the suspense was eating me up. Very good story linewell written. Thank you, Oliver Phipps.

    14. This is a great book. It kept me interested throughout the entire book. Reading this book made me want to read all of the books written by Oliver Phipps.

    15. I love Oliver Phipps work but this is a masterpiece. I wish there would be a second book but I don't think anyone could create anything worthy of this one, even Oliver. My hope is he will write something similar in the future (are you reading this Olie hint hint).

    16. A beautiful and emotional story. I believe it will be a movie someday but the book will always be most fantastic.

    17. Loved itDo you ever watch your favorite show and find yourself hollering at the t.v.? This book had me doing the same thing. The character Gina is very inspirational in this book. Her dad passed away and her mom abandoned her at age 13. This book starts off at the downfall of Gina but builds her back up throughout the book. Her first mistake was trusting some guy she just met that said he can get her an acting job. She boarded a ship with him. He attacked her and she ran. Luckily she put on a li [...]

    18. I cannot believe I finished this. Helpful hint to authors from an old lit major: Novels require plots. Plots require conflicts. This book has no real conflict after the first chapter until you are nearly to the end. And the conflict introduced in the end is so vague and pointless that it is not engaging enough to keep anyone reading unless, like me, they force themselves to do so. On top of the lack of conflict, the characters are not well developed at all. Many--such as Olivia, Alicia and Mimi- [...]

    19. A Tempest Soul is aptly named. The protagonist, through a series of life events, winds up alone and supporting herself at the tender age of thirteen. The reader arrives on the scene of now seventeen year old Gina Falcone, who after several years on her own, is hungering for a more glamorous life – or at least a slightly more interesting one. Following a set of selfish and nearly deadly choices in pursuit of a better life, Gina winds up as a stranger in a strange land. Having lost it all, Gina [...]

    20. This is the third Oliver Phipps book I have read, and I'm just as impressed. A Tempest Soul progresses so fast that you don't want to close the book.Gina Falcone/Serena was not a perfect person, but what made her stand out is her using flamenco dancing to better herself. It gained her new skills and new people to call "family." She went from an aspiring entertainer without anything to love to a skilled, more mature dancer who willingly puts her closest friends before herself.Gina/Serena's adopti [...]
