An Affair To Remember

While visiting with Terry, Grandmother Janou says, “There’s nothing in Nicholas that a good woman can’t change.” What do you think she sees in Nickie that others do not?

After arriving in New York, Nickie decides to resume his painting. Why was it important for him to become successful at it before meeting Terry again? How did his painting play into their reunion?

Both fiances took the news of Nickie and Terry’s shipboard romance remarkably well. Does this represent the usual response to a broken engagement? What admirable qualities do you think the fiances possessed?
