    My favourite David Bergen book was The Time in Between. Although it was a tough read because of the nature of the relationships between the father, a Viet Nam war vet, and his children, it was an enlightening read. I recommend it as a timely novel now that we have so many Afghan war vets returning to their families. Stories of PTSD and suicides among soldiers abound. This book gives us a window into the situation.
