New boyfriend moving in immediately, me insisting 'it's not a rebound!' even after everyone has stopped listening, being cited in his messy divorce, him being sectioned, then breaking up with me Going into therapy after dating a potentially violent, certainly threatening, narcissist (the most pertinent point of which should be noted: I did not break up with him - he ghosted me)How to address this situation?

The perfect, if somewhat unusual, distraction from Eleanor's ongoing crisis.But the trip offers so much more than Eleanor could ever have hoped for.Through the vivid and worldly older women in her life, she learns what it means to be staunch in the face of true adversity.
