Blurb..."Áine and her wife Nora, self-described introverted bookworms, were happily ensconced in their small-town-with-cat life when everything changed. Faced with the death of Nora’s beloved mother and new twists and turns in Áine’s unfolding spiritual path, they both wanted more from life. More what? More of their beloved Morrissey.

Now I understand that "Louder than Bombs" comes from Elizabeth Smart. Am just reporting what Tom wrote.
