Publisher's Summary

An irresistible novel brimming with wit, warmth, and Irish humor, about the married owners of a friendly tavern in Belfast and the intimate lives of the customers and employees who band together to save it from demolition. Jack Beaumont and his beautiful wife, Lily, are the owners of the tavern on Maple Street, a tiny Victorian pub they inherited from Jack's great-uncle Ernest. It's a quiet place, untouched by the modern world, and that's why the customers like it so much. But a property developer wants to demolish the tavern and build a shopping mall on Maple Street.
Jack and Lily and their little home-away-from-home are suddenly plunged into the limelight, caught in a desperate struggle to save their business from the bulldozers, or, with the help of some new employees, to at least make as much money as possible during their last few months as landlord and landlady.
In The Tavern on Maple Street, Sharon Owens delivers another delicious sparkler full of love, friendship, relationships, and the day-to-day lives of ordinary people, one that is sure to satisfy readers' insatiable appetite for her romantic and quirky Belfast tales.

Wonderful Book & Wonderful Narrator

I'd previously read Tea House on Mulberry Street and really enjoyed it, so I was pleased to see audio offerings from Sharon Owens. I love the characters in these books and the way their lives intertwine.

The narrator was wonderful. She had a pleasing voice with an authentic Irish lilt.

I thoroughly enjoyed this audio presentation of The Tavern on Maple Street. I'm off to get another by this author now.
