Compelled by Desire tells the story of Richard, a born and bred rancher, who makes it to the big city as a futures trader. But despite the endless access to money, women and travel, the ever-elusive concept of happiness remains just out of reach. Reaching a critical junction in his life, Richard must take a profound look back on his life, including his many questionable behaviours, and embark on a courageous journey of self-exploration in order to figure out himself, his relationships and his path to contentment. A compelling tale of success, heartbreak and reformation, this raw and intimate story will take you on an emotional journey that will undoubtedly stir a desire to forge your own path to enlightenment.

The author’s personal experience with addictive behavior has inspired deep introspection and a broad investigation of philosophical and spiritual propositions. His agrarian origins, formal education, and years in the investment business provide authentic grounding for this intimate account. He presently spends a good deal of time on the prairies near his childhood home, while otherwise traveling the world with enduring passion.

  • Dr. D.

    James Clare's book, Compelled by Desire is a book with heart, a courageous one. It is a chronicle of the ravages, physical, emotional, social and spiritual, of the disease of addiction, alcohol, sex and materialism. The pain and suffering is so authentic, at times it is difficult to read about. But a new redemptive story emerges, one with hope, wisdom and meaning.
    It is a read that inspires understanding and compassion. Incidentally, the reader can experience a world widely traveled, including mountain adventures and an education in the world of finance. While serious and reflective, there are laugh out loud moments, lyrical descriptions of scenery and even poetry.

  • Ms. Susanne C. W.

    This marvellously candid and vivid story captured my attention, emotions and heart. The author's endless multifarious ambitions and adventures helped validate the many paths I have taken (and not taken). The quest for higher self slowly, at times painfully, unfolds from the shadows of impropriety into the awakening light of transformation. What comes through at the end is the author's humbled spirit--grounded, free, on a mindful path with heart.
    To be continued in a second book is this reader's desiring.
