I think it's a common theme, but that's just an event in the novel, not the whole novel itself. What matters is what happens afterwards, how she heals from the experience, and that can take many forms, some of which just might resonate with readers.

I think go for it. There's a reason why the theme resonated with you in the first place, and now that you're done, to censor it because you feel it's been overdone just might take away the original message or theme or feel for the book.
