    • A Handful of Heaven is Kristin Hannah's debut novel, and after reading a few of her newer books, it was obvious to me. She has come a long way! Set in the winter/spring of 1896 in the Yukon Territory of Alaskan wilderness, Devon applies to become a partner at a trading post for Stone Man. Except Devon was picturing a city, and ends up in a tent city out in the sticks! Stone Man wants nothing to do with Devon, because he was expecting a HE and got a SHE instead, and everyone knows, Alaskan gold m [...]


    • I enjoyed the story very much. The heroine is named Devon and she is 29 years old and lives back East in 1900. Devon is a spinster and wants to control her own future so she answers ad for half owner of a supply store in Alaska. This is my type of story because hero evolves and changes inside and out. We are watching him change as well as the heroine. Yukon Territory was depicted with vivid detail and really captured my imagination. The only tiny problem I had was I thought the Hero was sold a l [...]


    • I adore Kristin Hannah’s recent work and wanted to see how she has developed as a writer - so I picked up this, her first book. Stone Man MacKenna places an ad for a partner to share his outpost in 1890’s Yukon. In exchange for room, board, and work for a year the partner will own half his store. He wants free time to pursue his passion of photography. A response from Devon O’Shea seems like a godsend - until SHE steps off the boat. Devon - a 29-year-old “spinster Aunt” was looking for [...]


    • This was Kristin Hannah's first book. I loved it. It was pure chic lit but a fun story. The story was also predictable but I still enjoyed it a lot. The characters were fun and made the story more interesting. Take a beautiful young woman and add in a town that is barely a town and all men, rough men, gold miners and it was a fun combination.This book was hard to find and not available in any of the libraries. It is dated 1991 and I got a first edition used. So, if you want to read the book, goo [...]


    • "Lady, if there's one thing you're in no danger of touching, it's my privates." she smiled grimly. "and here I was thinking I had nothing to be thankful for." Enjoyable romance in the Yukon gold rush Era. strong willed characters, entertaining.



    • HANDFUL OF HEAVEN - GHannah, Kristin - StandaloneEarly 1900s Yukon territory WAS A GOLD MINER'S HEAVEN,AND DEVON O'SHEA HAD COME TO CLAIM HER SHARE.But instead of a thriving store in a boom town, Devon O'Shea discovered she was part owner of a filthy, disorganized tent -- stuck in the middle of a godforsaken frozen moose pasture -- with a bunch of motley gold diggers and a mountainous slap of animosity for a partner: Stone Man MacKenna.Gathering mop, pail, and sheer determination, Devon vowed to [...]


    • Oh this is an awesome example of the best of romance cliches! Plucky Devon O'Shea leaves her wretched life in St. Louis (or somewhere) and sets out for the Yukon! She arranged by mail to become partner in a trading post with Stone Man McKenna. He, of course, though she was a MAN. He wants a partner in his trading post so he can take nature pictures or something. He is flabbergasted to see Devon is a woman and tries to make her leave, but she won't go. They have to share a tent! In the Yukon wint [...]


    • I loved this book. I love when the hero and heroine do not like each in the beginning, or at least when the hero does not want a relationship but they slowly fall in love anyways. This book had a great story of just that happening. This author, Kristin Hannah, took her time telling the story so that you got to thoroughly know each character and could actually see and feel their individual emotions as they slowly fell in love. She is a great story teller! I loved how the heroine was a strong, ind [...]


    • Not quite what I was expecting. This is one of the older books that Kristin Hannah wrote, and her later books are so much better!This feels like a typical romance-y story, girl goes to the wilderness in answer to an ad in the papers for a partner to run a store (this is set in the 1800s). Guy doesn't expect a girl because of her name (Devon). They have problems getting along, she likes everything neat and tidy and talks a lot, he's a loner. Of course, they get together, but the guy is unable to [...]


    • 3.5 stars. I didn't care for the ending. I think she cut it too short. Plus, the book seemed out of balance. The beginning and middle were too long, drawn out while the ending was too short.I did like the characters and the fact that it wasn't insta-love. I could have smacked Cornelius for how stubborn he was!I will likely read this author again.


    • Hannah's first. She gets much, much better. If you've never read her, I wouldn't recommend starting here. A pleasant 90's historical with a much overused trope - hero hires/partners with heroine sight unseen, horrified to discover the 'he' he thought he had corresponded with is a she.


    • After reading several of Kristin Hannah's books, I decided to look at some of her earlier books. This is her first book, and while it isn't The Nightingale, I did enjoy it a lot. It has been a while since I have read a romance novel. It was very enjoyable! Thanks Kristin!


    • I believe "A Handful of Heaven" is Kristin Hannah's first novel published in 1991. No wonder she is one of my lately favorite authors. Now having read her first novel, I am amazed by her way with words. I read this one in one day. Love her work!


    • This wasn't a bad book I think because it is a bit different from hernewer books I had a slower time reading it. It's a sweet story and worthreading for Kristin Hannah fans! :)




    • Very intense a romantic novel.The emotions are very complicated.The evolution of their relation is step-by-step but not slow.I love this book.


    • Two lost souls find each other in the Yukon in the late 1890's gold rush. This is a very early novel by Kristin Hannah. It lacks the sophistocation of her later books, but is a good simple romance.


    • A love/adventure story set in 1896 in the Yukon. Gold rush days. Two damaged people try to let go of the past and move on with each other. Predictable, but sweet!




    • I love Kristen Hannah, and especially have liked her older books that flash back to the 1700 and 1800's. All of her books are great.


    • Reading some of Kristin Hannah's earlier stuff. This was her debut novel. It was ok. I prefer her more recent books.


    • I should put down a five instead of a four. I believe this is the first book written by Kristan Hannah and it is an adventure! Stick your feet into the mud and fall in love. A great story.
