Mary Alice Ranieri, a dedicated novelist and poet, has completed her new book “The Last Leaf”: a personal memoir featuring a dear family history that comes to life with Raineri’s conversational narrative.

Author Ranieri writes: “All [the members of my family] have now met their makers and soul mates, leaving me to be the last leaf on the family tree to rescue old photo albums and scrapbooks. . . Each album filled and labeled in white ink reminds that I am no longer the middle child but the last leaf on the tree.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Mary Alice Ranieri’s absorbing tale shows time and time again Ranieri’s positive attitude and perseverance in her life circumstances, not matter how strange or foreign.

Mary Alice Ranieri shares her life story and a window into her family tree that traces its roots back to Cherokee and Irish ancestry. She fondly describes her experience growing up during the Depression with six siblings, an ill mother, and a soon-to-be-widowed father. Her brothers are drafted for the war, and she loses her sister to another kind of battle. Mary witnesses the world’s largest earthquake and encounters people of different nationalities and cultures. Her perceptive voice is that of a woman who proudly lives to be the last leaf of the family tree.

Readers who wish to experience this engaging work can purchase “The Last Leaf” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, Kobo or Barnes and Noble.
