Snail's Pace (book) by Susan Wachtman. Book cover
Snail’s Pace is a quirky space opera about a Victorian woman who becomes governess to a space alien snail. Will her strict sensibilities allow Susannah to tutor a creature who leaves a slimy trail? Overly self-confident, Susannah accepts an offer to become the governess to a young foreigner on a ship. She does not expect the ship to be in space, or the foreign child to be an alien snail. Nevertheless, she throws herself into the job of bringing Victorian decorum to the natives.
