from chapter 15

In Chapter 15, we see that Godfrey Cass, having narrowly escaped complete disaster, seems quite firm, resolute, sober and happy. Certainly Nancy will marry him, given his about-face, and certainly all will be well, he imagines. But Godfrey has not yet sacrificed a thing. He is still his normally dishonest, cowardly soul. Circumstances have changed--his wife has died, his child is being taken care of, Dunstan has disappeared again--but nothing substantial has changed in Godfrey's character. He is still susceptible to his old weaknesses. In Part Two, Godfrey finally will have to face up to his cowardice.
