The Intent
Jürgen D. Beck


5.25 x 8 - 320 Pages

Jürgen D. Beck was born in Schweinfurt, Germany in March of 1944. At age fourteen, he left home and moved to Essen Kray, where he worked in a coal mine for the next four years. At age eighteen, he boarded the Greek Liner Akadia and immigrated to Canada where he earned a living as a construction labourer, dishwasher, and bartender. Within a few short years his command of the English language allowed him to become a banker and restaurant owner. Always ready to seek new challenges, he obtained his pilot’s license and sold pleasure aeroplanes for several years. This venture in turn led him to the insurance and investment field.

The Intent is his first novel.

Jürgen lives with his second wife Felicia and his adopted son Alex on Lower Beverly Lake, in Eastern Ontario, Canada. He has three children from his first marriage, and seven grandchildren. A lifelong passion for meeting people with diverse backgrounds took him to South and Central America, Hong Kong, Taiwan, across Canada, the U.S.A. and most of Europe, several times.

The Intent, a historical novel, is to some extent born from a need to reconcile postwar years in his native Germany as a young boy. Moreover The Intent sheds light on the fallacy “War for Peace” and examines the separation of vice and virtue. In addition, The Intent is an urgent warning to be mindful of socio-economic changes and diminishing human rights, all too prevalent in the world-shattering times we live in.
