[bksvol-discuss] Re: submitted

The story I'm thinking of, if anyone can come up with the title, is about
these children, possibly some brothers and sisters, who get stranded on an
island. Everything is fine until they realize that the water is starting to
overwhelm the island. The water comes up and up, or the island is sinking--I
can't remember which--until there's just about no island left. They're
rescued at that point. I think there is a sequel, too. This island appears
and disappears over long stretches of time and there are legends about it.
That's what I remember.
