Angela Merlo By light-in-darkness Completed

A young woman tormented by anxiety meets a mysterious man with the gift to compel her fears away. But with his powers come questions about whether her feelings and decisions are actually her own. 
Alison Halse didn't know her cousin hadn't intended to encourage her to commit suicide. But after suffering for years with intense anxiety disorders, those few thoughtless words have been lingering in Alison's mind for months.

Now on the day of her high school graduation, Alison is about ready to do it. She abandons everything, drives out to the lake, and walks in. But when Alison fails to follow through with her plan, a new solution presents itself. Philip Dussault is attractive, alluring, and possesses the power to control Alison's mind and suppress her anxiety.

Common sense would be to avoid him, to never let him have that control again. And yet, how can she resist such a temptation? How can she not return to Devil's Lake and find the freedom that only Philip Dussault can give?
