Richardson, Henry Handel: The Fortunes of Richard Mahony. V1. 2 Jun 2 2012

Henry Handel Richardson, the pseudonym used by Ethel Florence Lindesay Richardson, (3 January 1870 20 March 1946) was an Australian author. She took the name "Henry Handel" because at that time, many people did not take women's writing seriously.

Excerpt
In a shaft on the Gravel Pits, a man had been buried alive. At work in a deep wet hole, he had recklessly omitted to slab the walls of a drive; uprights and tailors yielded under the lateral pressure, and the rotten earth collapsed, bringing down the roof in its train. The digger fell forward on his face, his ribs jammed across his pick, his arms pinned to his sides, nose and mouth pressed into the sticky mud as into a mask; and over his defenceless body, with a roar that burst his ear-drums, broke stupendous masses of earth.
