The Siege

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I got into this novel, enjoying its story of a white business-man experiencing life as a hobby farmer and the stories of the characters who live on or near the farm. But I kept hoping for a payoff that didn't arrive at the end, and the next to the last chapter was so deeply unsatisfying that I struggled even giving it three stars.
