Description:
 Discussion of books--both fiction and nonfiction--in which art plays a central role. December's title is _The Music Lesson_, by Katherine Weber.

"Patricia Dolan defines herself as an art historian, and as an Irish American. When she is 41, the combination of the two proves explosive, leading her to a rough cottage in West Cork. In Ireland she has for company only her own words, one elderly neighbor, and "The Music Lesson," a beautiful Vermeer executed on wood. As she anticipates the arrival of Mickey, her distant relative and lover, Patricia slowly, tantalizingly reveals the events that have led to her to this place, involving a radicalized cousin and a plot to kidnap and ransom the Vermeer, property of the Queen of the United Kingdom.. The painting, she tells herself fervently, "is an instrument of magic. Perhaps now it is also an instrument of change, a talisman, the charm that will force powerful people to pay attention and take decisive action at last."
