    Romola (–63) is a historical novel by George Eliot set in the fifteenth century, and is "a deep study of life in the city of Florence from an intellectual, artistic, religious, and social point of view". LibriVox recording of Romola, by George Eliot.

Oct 04,  · With Romola Garai, Michael Gambon, Jonny Lee Miller, Jodhi May.

She cannot resist finding suitors for her friends, most of all Harriet Smith (Louise Dylan). Emma is desperate for Harriet to find happiness, but every suitor /10(K).

    I particularly enjoyed the Florentine setting and Romola's efforts to deal with Tito's bad decisions. The characters are complex and interesting, and their dilemmas and conflicts are universal. I didn't know much about the time period before I started the book, and I think that hindered my enjoyment and understanding of the novel/5(15). Romola doesn't really love him, but marries him because her father wishes it. When the Medici are forced out, Tito joins the new government and rises to be chief magistrate. His evil actions earn him the hatred of Romola and of the people, and he is killed by his stepfather. Romola ends up with sculptor Carlo, who has always loved her.
