The Rider of the White Horse by Rosemary Sutcliff

This is the story of a marriage.
Yet is also the story of England's civil war, as seen through the eyes of 
Sir Thomas Fairfax and his indomitable wife Anne, who trailed in the wake of 
her husband's army for three exhausting years, so that she could be with him 
when he needed her.
Sir Thomas Fairfax, who was to become commander-in-chief of Cromwell's Army, 
is the stirring hero of this dramatic historical novel.

Rosemary Sutcliff CBE (14 December 1920 - 23 July 1992) was a British 
novelist best known for children's books, especially historical fiction and 
retellings of myths and legends. For her contribution as a children's writer 
Sutcliff was a runner-up for the Hans Christian Andersen Medal in 1974. 
Although she was primarily a children's author, some of her novels were 
specifically written for adults. Her other adult works include `Blood & 
Sand' and `The Flowers of Adonis'.
