Clarendon Island by Jane P Hill

Feeling lonely and isolated on Clarendon Island, fourteen-year old Charlotte Yorke soon learns that a remote barrier island can be a uniquely exciting place to live. Encounters with robbers, an eccentric neighbor, ghosts, and a most unlikely hero change her perspective.

This lighthearted historical novel is set in the South Carolina Lowcountry during the late 1880s. As Charlotte evolves from a lonely, awkward adolescent to a confident young woman, she learns about the history and culture of the Lowcountry through her neighbors, her housekeeper, and through several ghosts who give first hand accounts of their lives in the Lowcountry from its early settlement through two wars.
