“A Belfast Tale is full of characters, language and circumstances that can only be described as uniquely, authentically and enjoyably Belfast." (Tony Macaulay, author of Paperboy and Breadboy.)
Following the success of the French exchange in Snugville Street, Angeline King takes us on another journey - this time to Washington D.C. When Annie and Jean meet at an induction for Project Children, a real-life charity that brought 25,000 children to America during the period of the Troubles in Northern Ireland, Shaun assumes he is in the company of old friends. Alone with Annie at Carrickfergus Castle, he then finds himself in a precarious situation. Letters cross the Atlantic follow, and Shaun becomes increasingly immersed in the world of Protestant Ulster. Fans of Snugville Street will enjoy meeting Annie and Shaun as much as they enjoy spending time with their old friends, Jean and Harry. There will be tears and as we follow tragic events that lead to Harry’s crime, and laughter as we encounter the charm and personality of the people of Northern Ireland once again. A Belfast Tale is a soulful transatlantic tale of ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances 1990s Belfast.
