The Women of Copper Country, by Mary Doria Russell
In July 1913, twenty-five-year-old Annie Clements has seen enough of the world to know that it is unfair. She's spent her whole life in the copper mining town of Calumet, Michigan, where men risk their lives for meager salaries that barely put food on the table and clothes on their backs. The women labor in the houses of the elite and send their husbands and sons deep underground each day, dreading the call from the company man telling them their loved ones aren't coming home. When Annie decides to stand up for herself, and the entire town of Calumet, nearly everyone believes she may have taken on more than she is prepared to handle. On her fierce quest for justice, Annie will discover just how much she is willing to sacrifice for her own independence and the families of Calumet.--From the dust jacket.

They tap Ben Zolstra, an ex-CIA field operative whose history with the Agency is conflicted, at best, to track down the mysterious figure behind the leak who threatens to release even more dangerous spells, one by one, until the world as we know it no longer exists. The clock is ticking as the United States races to keep the incantation from the world's most dangerous criminals. But as more magic is unleashed into the world, its power is proving deadly...--From the dust jacket.
