'There is no book of mine about which I more thoroughly feel that I swear by every sentence as having been written with my best blood' George Eliot

“Some day I'll start a list of History's Most Underrated Great Books, or History's Greatest Underrated Books, and start it off with this.” Naomi

“Set in Florence at the time of Savonarola and the bonfires of the vanities, this is a great read.” Caroline

“Eliot crafts a fascinating, first-rate historical fiction plot based in Florence, Italy, from the death of Lorenzo de’ Medici (in 1492), through the time of Savonarola’s influence, and culminating in an epilogue placed in 1509. In the midst of this tumultuous social situation is placed our heroine, Romola. The daughter of a scholar, Romola herself is very well educated for a woman of her time. This novel follows Romola through six complex post-de’Medici years of Florentine politics, further inflamed by the preachings of Savonarola, a Dominican friar.” Care

ROMOLA is one of the most profound and stirring historical novels of all time. Presented in a beautiful edition specially designed for kindle, this is George Eliot’s masterpiece which will stay with you forever.
