As the debut book of author Daniel McCrimons, MD, “Diamonds in the Water: A Furnace Awaits You” is a work of historical fiction that explores the life of Windsor Langford Waterbury III, born in 1901 into a wealthy and privileged New York family and trained to become an empathetic and worldly respected physician.

His multi-generational wealth, professional status, physical presence, and instilled ethical standard would appear to give him the “perfect” life, but appearances do not portray the full picture. Among the many difficult life challenges, Windsor was dealt a shocking secret about his revered grandfather’s identity in 1965 as well as a previous family-induced scheme that ultimately altered his bright future. Throughout his story, despite those adversarial and emotional setbacks, Windsor remains standing and resolved.

“I was given a vision to write a life story during a sermon at church about 25 years ago,” said McCrimons. “I wrote bits and pieces over the next ten years and was introduced to a history professor who listened to my storyline and was instrumental in helping me put the full version together.”

“Diamonds in the Water” presents a comprehensive message that distinct, spiritually bounded people are like the world’s rarest diamonds—resilient, unalterable, and priceless.
