England, 1775: An ambitious American pushes his expedition onward despite dire warnings from the locals. But what Benjamin Franklin discovers on the Isle of Wight isn't just superstition.

Pay attention to those old books in the basement!

Where does The Keepers of the Library rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Ranks very high
Who was your favorite character and why?
Will Piper... ladies man, leader, and quick thinker with a straight-to-the-point attitude
Which scene was your favorite?
Final scene was my favorite ... I couldn't have guessed how it was going to end. Nicely done! Could there be a 4th book in the works?
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes, it was very engaging and the author does a great job mixing present day story with the historical story. Full of twists and turns that had me on the edge of my seat.
Any additional comments?
There is a part in the beginning of the book that chews up about 45 minutes recounting what happened in the two books prior that led up this this third book... this was a little annoying, but if you hadn't read the first two books you'll probably enjoy that synopsis.
