Men on White Horses (by Pamela Haines)

'Men on White Horses' is a historical novel by Pamela Haines.

The book is set in the early 1900s.  Edwina, rather a misfit in her family, goes to a convent school and befriends the temperamental Fanny. As she grows up, she develops her gift of playing the piano, falls in love, and uncovers family secrets.

I found the story a bit muddled in places but it was fast-moving and quite readable, with an unexpected but believable climax.

Recommended in a low-key way.
