The Goddess Muck, a small and loveable immortal who watches over farmers in the south-west, finds herself welcoming the supreme Olympian god, Lord Zeus, who comes to Britain with his wife to see how much improved the people are after two thousand years of Christianity. The Goddess Muck enlists the help of her three friends Mammon, Folly and Must-be-done who show Lord Zeus the fine British institutions. The Olympian is impressed by what he sees, but certain goings-on alarm the Goddess Muck who is unable to conceal the scandalous behaviour of her two favourites, a young farmer and his wife. It is a rich tapestry of fact and fantasy as Jill Dudley draws on her love of the Greek classics and her earlier years in dairy farming to weave legend and myth from ancient Greece with reality today. Her light touch guarantees an amusing read.
