Yeah, I agree that Phoebe’s a strong person and her past has not destroyed her. What didn’t ring quite true for me is how quickly she was able to be happily sexual with Remington without any issues emerging at all. Sexual trauma is a repetitive theme in Goodman’s writing and she usually spends significant time on the issue in her books, whereas here it popped up and then vanished just as quickly. I actually kept waiting for it to be discussed and explained more right to the end.
