About the Author

Ethel Florence Lindesay Richardson was sent to board at the Presbyterian Ladies College in 1883 - an experience that provided material for her novel The Getting of Wisdom. She published her first novel, Maurice Guest, in 1908. She took the pen name of Henry Handel Richardson and used it for all of her books. Richardson made her only journey back to Australia in 1912 to complete her research for the trilogy that would become The Fortunes of Richard Mahony. Her final novel The Young Cosima appeared in 1939. Henry Handel Richardson died in Sussex in 1946.
