Did you mean by the end of the novel? Sure, her attitude has changed, she's slinking around their summerhouse like some sort neurotic ghost. As long as old Jonny boy is in the mix, I don't think she can get better. John is really a representation of the whole patriarchal system that existed then. A woman had to conform within the superficial parameters of feminine identity at the time of suffer complete loss of self.
