Start Reading Chestnut Street Now . . .

Chestnut Street is out in paperback, eBook and audio on Thursday 4th June.

Maeve Binchy’s bestselling story collection, Chestnut Street, is out in paperback this week.

Maeve is one of our all-time favourite storytellers and these warm and funny stories, which  reveal the lives of the residents of St Jarlath’s Crescent, Dublin, is a reminder of why she was so beloved  by readers around the world.

As the  incredible response to our #MaeveMeans  twitter competition last year proved, no one rivals Maeve for stories of warmth, kindness, love, loss – and life not always turning out as expected.

 Chestnut Street isn’t out in the shops until Thursday but you can start reading right now.
