See You in Le Touquet - A Memoir of War and Destiny by Romie Christie


While driving through the war-ravished town of Le Touquet, France in September 1944, Canadian Army Captain Sandy MacPherson was surprised to see a blonde woman running toward his Jeep. Dorothy Borutti had vowed she would embrace the first liberator who came to free her and her hometown of Le Touquet from the German occupiers. And now he was here, in front of her!

Sandy and Dorothy’s story follows their separate journeys in Canada and France, and their wartime efforts to return the world to freedom. After the war, Dorothy followed Sandy back to Canada, where he would rule on significant cases as an esteemed Saskatchewan Queen’s Bench judge, and Dorothy would embrace her new country of Canada while serving as a lifelong ambassador for France.

Their daughter, former Canadian journalist Romie Christie, shares glimpses of her parents’ captivating lives through their personal journal entries, family stories, and historical records.
