About the Book

A small Island in the Caribbean, where the soil is rich in minerals, and known as the land of spice, Dr. Constance Telesfford was born on that soil, the Island of Grenada.

The first of seven children, she was the recipient of harsh punishment from her mother, and the victim of attempted rape twice as a child. She migrated to Aruba with her siblings to join her parents where she completed most of her academic education. The spoken language was Dutch, a new experience but learning a new language was a good thing. Dr. Telesfford received her nursing education and post graduate midwifery in London, England where she met and married Albert Prescott after graduation. Having worked as a practicing midwife after graduation, Dr. Telesfford migrated to America with her husband and their two daughters, at the invitation of her sister, to work in medicine.

A retired nurse and missionary to the nations, she is the recipient of a Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology, Bachelor’s Degree in Religious Education, Master’s Degree in Health Care Administration, Master’s Degree in Theology, and a Doctorate Degree in Theology, Ph.D. Dr. Telesfford ministered in New York City, the Caribbean Islands, including Grenada, Trinidad and Tobago, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Jamaica, and lastly, Bolivia—South America. Also, she travelled extensively throughout the nations including England, India, China, Asia, the Philippines, Hong Kong, Israel, Rome, Egypt, and Bolivia—South America. Dr. Telesfford relocated to Florida to escape the many years of bitter cold weather, not without challenges. Her ex-husband vowed she’ll never be happy with another man; but God is faithful to see her through. She enjoys playing the piano as the Lord insists that she continue her music.
