Descriptive and lovely

I never imagined a book that takes place almost entirely in one's bedroom could be so interesting. The author is bedridden due to a mysterious illness and a friend drops off a gift of flowers that happens to have a brown garden snail living on it. This small, peaceful book recounts her time watching the snail. It has lovely descriptions interspersed with interesting mollusca information. I fell in love with her snail and I think you will too.
