You Cannot Serve Two Masters is a follow-up to the pilot book The Desperate Search. It picks up where the first book leaves off in the Jedidiah Cole, Frontier Scout series. Many have expressed their excitement and anticipation of this book. Having read the first, they have eagerly awaited the release of this newest addition to the series. In the first week alone over three thousand copies of the first book sold. This addition continues the story of Jedidiah Cole and his beautiful wife Rebeccah. Forging a living from the unforgiving wilderness that was to be the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina, they are hard put to fend off their unwelcome aggressors. As the settlers chafe at the increasingly restrictive and invasive laws and taxes of the British crown, it becomes all too clear that an unconditional separation of states must come, empowering the settlers with independence. Times are dangerous. Loyalties are divided.
Acting as unrestrained agents of the British government, bands of Indians from multiple tribes depredate the frontier settlements. The English encourage this to force the settlers to feel vulnerable and helpless hoping it fosters a sense of dependence on crown protection. Fortunately for the settlers, they see through the ploy and respond as all frontier settlers eventually would. This book, like the first, historically falls just prior to the beginning of the Revolutionary War. Jedidiah is requested to form a group of clandestine frontier rangers to avenge and protect the American settlers against the tyrannical attacks by the British forces and their Indian allies. He will accept the commission from George Washington himself. But first he must hide his growing family far away from the possibility of reprisals. George Washington needs time to build and fortify his continental army. Jed is going to buy him that time! Don't miss this exciting addition to the powerful series Jedidiah Cole, Frontier Scout.
