The letter arrived shortly after the death of Jebidiah James Carpenter II’s parents in the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Penned by Jeb’s father in 1999, the letter reveals the existence of the Carpenter Family Secret Resolution and the existence of hidden wealth in the Carpenter home in North Carolina. Enrolled in the military academy, Jeb has just become the seventh Keeper of the family.
That legacy began in 1825 when Jebidiah James Carpenter, JJ to his friends and family, conceived the Carpenter Family Secret Resolution. He was a respected US Army officer, a Confederate officer, and a successful businessman. The resolution set a specific course for his descendants and was designed to protect the family’s heritage and its wealth.
The Carpenter family wealth allows Jeb to serve his country through his involvement with the CIA and military intelligence, protecting the American way, though at considerable risk to himself and more than average risk to his loved ones.
Providing a snapshot of a dark time in the nation’s history, Carpenter House presents a fictional story of love, espionage, and one family’s remarkable legacy.
