Fantasy, fiction

Smaller, paper back book

The book is set around Victorian era? At least, from how they described the dresses and since the main character was getting married young that's how it seemed.

The power or magic that she used came from the sun and she drew it from sunlight or something. She used it once to save her brother from falling off a horse I think, but some other kids saw her and she had to hide it afterwards.

Her mom also had this power but isn't around I cant remember why

I'm pretty sure she has a younger sister

She and her family pretty much live in the country or at least on a bunch of land

I've been trying to casually find this book again for a couple of years now and when I think of the next book I want to read this ones always the one I try to look for first before giving up again and picking a different one.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Possibly Arcana by Jessica Leake? In the first chapter, she saves her brother from a fall off a horse and gets in trouble because her power was seen by one of the maids.
