Hannah thinks of herself as living in a fairy tale, though not as the star. She thinks that she's a minor character, like a cook or a handmaiden. When she met and began working for Attorney Jeremy Fitzgerald, she finally began to think that she could be the star of her story. He was her one true love, even if he was a married man with children. She never thought that he'd return her affection—until today.
The shift that Hannah undergoes when she begins working for Attorney Fitzgerald illustrates clearly that love has the power to fundamentally change how a person thinks about their lot in life.
