Historical Setting: Cape Cod, Massachusetts, 1920s

Ellen, a 17-year-old college freshman, spends a 1920s summer in Cape Cod with 12-year-old Jane, the daughter of a marine biologist. The two enjoy the seaside and family life as they go on picnics and fishing expeditions while learning about nature, and even help solve a bit of a mystery.

The book "describes the unspoiled beauty of Woods Hole, Massachusetts, where scientists study marine biology with inadequate equipment but disciplined dedication."
