  The Town That Came A-Courtin', Berkley  


Back to Books

In Ronda Rich’s dazzling debut novel, a whole town falls in love with one Southern woman – and she falls in love right back…(from the book jacket)

Sometimes a great story finds you and you just have to tell that story. When Ronda stopped in Blytheville, Arkansas on book tour a few years ago, she found herself plopped down in the midst of loving, generous town folks, many who had matchmaking on their mind. Seems the town wanted to find the perfect match for their beloved mayor.

From the experience was born Ronda’s first novel – a favorite of critics and
fans – about the fictional town of Bliss, Mississippi, whose town’s people goes in search of a wife for its widowed and handsome mayor.

Selected as a prestigious Reader’s Digest Condensed Book, The Town That Came A-Courtin’ has found its way into the heart of many, following in the tradition of the popular Mitford series.

"I adore these characters,” Ronda says. “They’re loving, lovable and unforgettable.” The Town That Came A-Courtin’, pronounced “charming” by Southern Living, is also a favorite among Christian booksellers.
