In the world of academia, Professor Lisa Pruitt seemed to have it all; she was recognized with numerous awards for research, teaching, and mentoring over decades of educational pursuit. As her career rose, Lisa painstakingly created an academic fa ade to lock away what lay within: an insecure little girl who believed the wrong daughter survived after her baby sister's sudden death.

At the peak of her career, a life-threatening horse accident became the catalyst for the collapse of her armor. Hitting rock bottom, Lisa had to face what she'd kept hidden for nearly three decades: an eating disorder and alcohol addiction. Deeply ashamed of her inner struggles, she refused to ask for help within her academic circles, yet traditional recovery paths failed to work. Instead, her beloved thoroughbred stepped up and served as her light during her darkest moments. As her healer and companion, JJ guided her through the hills and valleys of her recovery, enabling Lisa to rediscover her worthiness that had been there all along.

Soul of a Professor is a remarkable story of resilience, perseverance, and-above all else-love.
