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.

Jack and Lilly Beaumont's beautiful Victorian pub in Belfast, Ireland, is threatened with destruction by a developer. Clearly, they need to beef up the business to save it. So Lilly hires four unusual women as barmaids and two men as singers, and soon they have more customers than they can handle. Caroline Winterson's soft Irish accent is easy to understand, and she differentiates characters, especially tavern regulars, with intonation and pacing. Her energetic narration works well with a story that focuses more on character than drama. Lilly copes with the personalities of her employees and all the extra work, and Jack keeps the customers happy in Owens's charming story of Irish love, life, and luck.
