Forgotten-YA-Novel-Filter: Help me remember a book I read when I was in middle school. It involved a teenage girl, a church, and grave rubbings!

I remember reading a novel in middle- or early high-school about a young woman (teenage years I believe) who moved, possibly with her mother, to a new place. I can't remember if the book was actually set in Ireland, but I remember it that way-- somewhere very green, possibly an island. I also remember the girl discovered a church and began taking grave rubbings from the stones, and that this was a major part of the novel. It's quite possible that magic was involved somehow, as I do remember the protagonist sitting in a field contemplating something magical or spiritual at one point. I remember being fascinated with this book-- particularly the grave rubbings-- and I would love to find it again!
