“10 cents a minute” Is a book describing with candor, unexpected and fascinating details that most people will never get to experience. Written by Roger Guy Holstein, who was born in the romantic, and history-packed city of Paris, France September 4th, 1936, on the famous “L'Île de la cité.” (Island of the city) in the hospital “Hotel Dieu” (God's hotel) which is located across the street from the marvelous and unique gothic Cathedral of “Notre Dame de Paris'', (Our Lady of Paris) which was recently beautifully restored following a catastrophic fire. Because of the name of where he was born, don't be surprised if you think you see a bright Halo over Roger's head after reading this book.
As a child, Roger's family environment was far from ideal. His father Adam, who was a past Marshall of the Army of the Tzar of Russia, Nicholas II, regrettably witnessed many gruesome murders of white Russians openly killed in the street by Red Bolsheviks. These events did not prepare him to be a good father or a good man. Many families had loving, dedicated fathers, Roger's did not! This father also had a roving womanizing eye. Many families lived for long periods of time in the same street and town even during the war, but this family could not. This father was not paying his bills, so he had to be on the move all the time. By contrast, Roger's mother was just the opposite, she was an extraordinary woman who always tried to compensate for the father's shortcomings until she had enough and divorced him,
Roger was the 7th child in the family, he had 5 brothers and two sisters, most were older than he was. The events of his life took place in many places like Paris, France, Lodz, Poland, Frankfurt and Berlin, Germany, Strasbourg, Coucy le Chateau, and Fouquerolles, France, Montreal Canada where he met his wife Flavia, and his first son Danny was born.
In West Los Angeles, Covina where the youngest sons Pierre and Paul were born, Hollywood, California, in Lake Worth, Pompano Beach, Boynton Beach Lighthouse Point, and Fort Lauderdale Florida. Roger's brothers thought he had a special connection to God. Occasionally, they asked Roger to intercede with the Almighty on their behalf. Perhaps his gaze into the clear French country night sky, staring at the Milky Way, wondering what's up there, helped him become more spiritual.
