A tale of the aftermath of the Vietnam War, The Time in Between tells of Charles Boatman as he returns to Vietnam, where he fought nearly thirty years ago as a reluctant and youthful soldier. When an old war colleague lends him a book written by a North Vietnamese soldier, Charles is immediately drawn to this young man's harrowing story of survival; the author's brooding photograph and the sadness that seems to hover around and above him intriguing Charles.
