Hello, and welcome to Just Answer!

I believe the book you are referencing is called "Magic Island" by Madye Lee Chastain.

Angel Thorne, a sickly ten year old, is sent to stay with her grandfather's boyhood friend. He decides to send her to Barbados to recuperate, along with his granddaughter Lissa, and her two friends, Emmy and Dodie.

Here is one of the only places I could find that discusses it. (scroll down to "Magic Island")

Here is a list of sellers.
