Thought I would review my own book!
Currently on the third chapter and finding it one of the most informative books I have read up to now, hope it continues in the next chapters.

Ladysmith by Ruari Chisholm first published in 1979 by Osprey Publishing.
Started reading last night and it seems a good book.

Keep us posted Paul, most of what I've read about Ladysmith was part of a more general story and so they dont dwell too long on the actual seige.
I particularly like the assault on gun hill and the defence of Wagon hill.

Gibson's book on the Imperial Light Horse, which I recommended earlier in this thread, has excellent accounts of both the raid on Gun Hill and the Battle of Wagon Hill.
