Protectors works for me, not least because it is a novel where past actions have consequences. Janeway isn't able to quickly reinsert herself back into her former life, B'Elanna and Tom's gambit has serious legal implications, Seven's past is influencing her relationship with Cambridge, and so on.
Beyer really excels at this sort of thing. Woman has never met a reset button.
I was afraid that bringing Janeway back would be just that kind of reset button, that bringing her back would have no consequences and she could go back happily into her own life. Happily, no such luck. Reintegrating into her everyday life is difficult across the board, and--I think--is portrayed reasonably realistically in that Janeway herself really has to change.
