The String Diaries opens with Hannah frantically driving through the night - her daughter asleep in the back, her husband bleeding out in the seat beside her. In the trunk of the car rests a cache of diaries dating back 200 years, tied and retied with strings through generations. The diaries carry the rules for survival that have been handed down from mother to daughter since the 19th century. But how can Hannah escape an enemy with the ability to look and sound like the people she loves?
Stephen Lloyd Jones' debut novel is a sweeping thriller that extends from the present day, to Oxford in the 1970s, to Hungary at the turn of the 19th century, all tracing back to a man from an ancient royal family with a consuming passion - a boy who can change his shape, insert himself into the intimate lives of his victims, and destroy them.
If Hannah fails to end the chase now, her daughter is next in line. Only Hannah can decide how much she is willing to sacrifice to finally put a centuries-old curse to rest.

Swallowing sounds are extremely distracting
Read the actual book instead of the audiobook. I’m hardly creeped out by such noises like a lot of people are, but GOOD LORD, the constant swallowing and spit sounds are distracting and some are just plain gross. We all make those noises, so it’s less the narrator and more the lack of proper editing. The story is fantastic, suspenseful and speaks of Wales and Hungary and different times in history. Extremely interesting, but get the actual book!
