"The Time In Between" is a novel by Canadian author David Bergen. It deals with a man named Charles Boatman, who mysteriously returns to Vietnam, where he had been a soldier earlier in his life, and his children, Ada and Jon, who also go to Vietnam to search for him.

Although generally called a war novel, the author states that he " [doesn't] see "The Time In Between" as a war novel" [http://www.mcclelland.com/catalog/display.pperl?isbn=9780771011788]

"The Time In Between" was the recipient of the 2005 Scotiabank Giller Prize.
