Publisher's Description

On an island off the coast of Virginia, the daughter of a US Lifesaver investigates a series of suspicious shipwrecks

It’s 1895. Rhoda Midyette lives on Glenn Island, where her father is keeper of the US Lifesaving Station. He leads rescue operations whenever a ship hits the dangerous shoals around the island—which has happened far too often lately. One stormy night, when Rhoda and her father’s team help the survivors off their destroyed boat, she spies a mysterious light on the cape above Graveyard Shoal. The next day, she finds footprints in the sand. Is someone deliberately causing the collisions? Swaying their lanterns so the sailors will navigate toward the perilous shallows instead of away from them? Or is it a ghost light—and are the footprints those of the mythical mangled mariner?
 
As she digs deeper, Rhoda uncovers clues that threaten everything she knows. With so much at stake—including her best-friendship with the gravely ill Pearl—Rhoda has to trust in herself and find a way to save lives.
 
This ebook includes a historical afterword.

Editorial Reviews

"Full of fascinating details about a little-known place and time. Today’s kids should be intrigued by facts such as people sleeping on seaweed-stuffed mattresses, using porpoise-oil lights for illumination, and going shopping only once a month—and getting there by boat, rather than by car." —Children’s Literature
 
"Jones combines a ghost story, a young girl’s love of animals, suspense on the high seas, and a rip-roaring mystery to create a highly appealing story for all reading abilities. Rhoda is 1895’s answer to Nancy Drew." —Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)
 
"A gripping and highly satisfying mystery." —Through The Looking Glass Children’s Book Reviews
