"In 1940, fifteen year-old Margot Fiske arrives on the shores of Monterey Bay with her eccentric entrepreneur father. Margot has been her father's apprentice all over the world, until an accident in Monterey's tide pools drives them apart and plunges her head-first into the mayhem of John Steinbeck's Cannery Row ... Alternating between past and present, Monterey Bay explores histories both imagined and actual to create an unforgettable portrait of an exceptional woman, a world-famous aquarium, and the beloved town they both call home."--Provided by publisher.

A wonderful blend of time and place mixed with a little Steinbeck and Monterey Bay Aquarium history. The story has its success in the portrayal of Margot Fiske who the author has narrate between two time periods. If you've read Steinbeck's Cannery Row or perhaps visited the Aquarium you may find it all the more delightful.
