From the publisher:
 
The Women of Bonnefoi (pronounced bonnie-foy) were Bertha Everard, her sister Edith Luise Mary King, and Bertha’s daughters Ruth and Rosamund King Everard. Collectively they are known in South African art history as ‘The Everard Group’, and are remembered for their bold, colourful depictions of the Eastern Transvaal landscape. The ladies were, however, not only artists...In this book the art of the Everard Group is closely examined, and the history of the women is reconstructed largely from the Everard correspondence which was found in an old wagon chest on the farm.”
