      By: George Eliot George Eliot's own favorite among her novels, this novel tells the story of Romola, the intelligent daughter of a blind scoller, who is falling in love with a man who is going to change her life and the politics of Florence in a way she doesn't like.   What novels are an example of local color fiction or regionalism? My teacher says Their Eyes were watching god is one. However, I cannot confirm that on any of the university English department sites. My hypothesis is that if this is true, then A Lesson before dying, to kill a mocking bird and others like these could be local color fiction too.
