Set in the American Midwest in the early 1980s, Priscilla's father has taught her, by example, how to deal effectively with issues of racism, and politics, too. And although she is of mixed race (African/British/Choctaw on her father's side and African/Irish/Cherokee on her mother's side), she is regarded as black in America.

Priscilla has just begun her faculty post at Florida A&M University, where she teaches political science, when her father asks her to relocate closer to home, (Prendergast, New York). She contacts an Ohio state senator for whom she once performed an internship during her graduate studies at The Ohio State University. He offers her a job as his legislative aide. She accepts. The story takes off.

Like a primer, "Priscilla" takes a deep look at the forces which made her what she is: her family's roots in highly-segregated Mississippi, her upbringing in upstate New York where subtle racism leaves its scars despite her loving father's protection, a campus date rape that leaves her with unhealed wounds and, a scintillating season as a high-powered legislative aide in a life-altering political scandal.
