Manfroné, or The One-Handed Monk by Mary Anne Radcliffe

Trade Paperback – Valancourt Books – Apr 2021 – 323 pages

Manfroné; or, The One-Handed Monk(1809) opens with an unforgettable Gothic scene: a lascivious monk enters the lovely Rosalina’s bedroom at midnight through a secret panel, planning to rape her—but suffers the gruesome loss of his hand when he is caught in the act!

But the one-handed monk is not the only danger facing Rosalina. Her father, the haughty Duca di Rodolpho, is determined to marry her to the cruel Prince di Manfroné and has imprisoned her true love, Montalto, in the castle dungeon. And then there is the mysterious Grimaldi. What are his inscrutable plans, and is he trying to help Rosalina or destroy her?

This new edition of one of the most popular of 19th-century Gothic novels includes the unabridged text of the original four-volume novel and features a new introduction by Lisa Kröger.
