Free Dec.26 ONLY - iBooks - The Book of Negroes by Lawrence Hill (CAN only?)
iTunes Canada has Lawrence Hill's The Book of Negroes free today, as part of their 12 Days of Christmas giveaway.
Abducted as an 11-year-old child from her village in West Africa and forced to walk for months to the sea in a coffle— a string of slaves— AminataDiallo is sent to live as a slave in South Carolina. But years later, she forges her way to freedom, serving the British in the Revolutionary War and registering her name in the historic “ Book of Negroes.” This book, an actual document, provides a short but immensely revealing record of freed Loyalist slaves who requested permission to leave the US for resettlement in Nova Scotia, only to find that the haven they sought was steeped in an oppression all of its own.

Not available at all in the US.
Edit - found it under the (apparently) less offensive title of Someone Knows My Name. Not free in the US (and costs more than on Kindle).
For those in the UK - more 12 days of xmas deals - http://www.itunes12daysofchristmas.co.uk/

The author speaks about the book here. It makes it clear why the book is titled the way it is in Canada.
