On 17 April 1986 a British TV journalist was kidnapped in Beirut. His name was John McCarthy and he was to remain a hostage for the next five years. During those years he was cut off from everything and everybody he knew and loved, including Jill Morrell, the girl he was going to marry.For five years, John had to endure the deprivation - both physical and psychological - of captivity.For Jill, the five years of John's captivity were a different kind of hell. But even as she began to pick up the threads of her life, she was refusing to give up hope. For five years she battled with the mandarins of the Foreign Office and worked ceaselessly on behalf of all the British hostages in the Middle East, until the extraordinary day in August 1991 when John stepped down from a plane at RAF Lyneham. This is their story of courage, endurance, hope and love.
