327N: Girl Swims Across Beach Cove At Night

I am searching for a book that I read in the early to mid-eighties – I believe the book was a 1960’s era book. A young girl moves to a beach house on a cape (maybe for the summer). Possibly the house across the cove was haunted or abandoned/isolated . What I remember most was that she had to climb down some cliffs at night and trek or swim across the cove in the ocean to get to the house. May have also included a brother or a local boy who had become a friend. Was she trying to save someone? Wish I had more memories but the climb down and swim across the cove at night are my most clear memories. Thanks.

  1. absolutely The Haunted Cove by Elizabeth Baldwin Hazelton….one of my all time favorites.

    There are two different picture covers, don’t be put off if you don’t recognize one, make sure you check out both. One is predominantly green, quite light and sunny, with the sister and her brother climbing a bluff. The other (less common) is quite dark and creepy looking. If you google the title and author and click “images” tab, there are lots of pics out there.
