About Snail’s Pace by Susan McDonough Wachtman:
Snail’s Pace is a space opera/ comedy of manners about Susannah, a Victorian woman who finds herself governess to an alien on a spaceship. Susannah did not expect this, and her intrepid British spirit and sense of superiority are severely tested by the experience of being employed by creatures who look like giant snails — particularly when they actually crawl on the dining table to eat their meal. Susannah’s hubris and naivete get her into trouble, and ultimately, it is only her slimy student who can save her — just as she is the only one who can save them.
