Hannah Gavener is a young woman who pursues romantic fulfillment with a hopeful heart, in the Curtis Sittenfeld novel "The Man of My Dreams." The story follows Hannah from her teen years to her late twenties, a period of time in which her skepticism sometimes threatens to overcome her hope. Hannah may remind some readers of the main character in Sittenfeld's first novel "Prep."
