In this beautiful and timely adaptation of David Bergen's 2005 Giller Prize-winning novel, Charles Boatman leaves the Fraser Valley and returns mysteriously to Vietnam, where he fought twenty-nine years earlier as a young, reluctant soldier. What he finds seems irreconcilable with his memories and he disappears.
When his daughter, Ada, and her brother, Jon, travel to the streets of Da Nang and beyond to search for him, their quest takes them into the heart of a country at once incomprehensible, impassive, and beautiful. There, they become entangled in the lives of those they encounter until gradually they learn the truth of their father's disappearance. Moving between father and daughter, the present and the past, The Time in Between is an unforgettable story about one family, two cultures, and a profound emotional journey.
