Franny O’Connell and Luke Deback come from very different backgrounds. Franny’s father is an oil tycoon, so he has never wanted for anything. Luke, on the other hand, comes from a poor family and struggled most of his childhood. Regardless of their economic status, the boys are both very intelligent and become fast friends.
They never could have expected to remain friends for life, but their paths continue to intersect through college, marriage, and beyond. Life isn’t simple, though. Even when flying high, it’s easy to trip and fall.
Based on a piece of art featuring stone steps and water in author Guy Kouche’s dining room, The Steps is a story of love, infidelity, overcoming adversity, and searching for happiness as boys become men but remain friends forever.
