Top Ten Tuesday ~ Favorite Frame Stories

Frame Story
a secondary story or stories embedded in the main story.

a narrative providing the framework for connecting a series of 
otherwise unrelated stories.

a literary device that uses such a narrative structure.

I love historical fiction. I love women's fiction. Naturally, I love a combination of the two. Here are some of my favorite frame stories. Check them out.
