"In CINNAMON GIRL BLUES, Wilma Brockington captures the essence of true friendship among three very caring and sensitive sisters of color. I could literally see pieces of me in all three ladies; however, Sasha appealed to me the most. At times, it seemed as though her character was telling my story and the other two were charting the course of two of my very close friends. Brockington did a great job with character development and weaving a very good story. A few times, I felt rushed with the story, but it was quickly forgotten in the unfolding drama. I am anxiously waiting to read more from this author."

"Ms. Wilma Brockington has written a modern tale of wounded heroes as well as suffering sympathetic villains. The hero and heroines at some point are standing still like a deer in headlights when it comes to the non-expertise areas of their lives. The villains and villainesses are ordinary people who have allowed themselves to be led slowly down the wrong path.
Her book is a delightful, fast-paced, and character-driven book with suspense and excellent narration. You'll find yourself talking back to the book as if it were a movie or a television show. You will laugh and cry during the subtle twists and turns of her characters' lives."

The Boss from Hell
"Wilma Brockington's Office Politics is fast-paced, with non-stop action. The characters are believable, every day working people. They could be sitting in a cubicle next to you or me. Brockington does a great job inserting you bit-by-bit into their lives. The time stamps, at the beginning of each chapter, allow you to emerge yourself into the character's day and walk it out with them. I thoroughly enjoyed this read and recommend it for those looking for a thrilling book."

It Still Takes a Village
"Who could refuse nuggets of inspiration on love, careers, raising children or life from 41 divas? That is what you will find in Been There, Done That. Short perceptions to use when there seems as if no one understands the relationship with your man, your children seem not to listen, or you are wondering if anyone else has survived what others deem career suicide. This book now provides insight for you at 3 in the morning, when you may be lying awake wondering how to handle the next day's events. When can you receive too much advice? Never. You can take it or leave it; so allow those with more experience to share their insights with you. Especially if your mother is not around to guide you, or your mother is still alive, you have sisters, or plenty of girlfriends - it takes a village of females to raise a woman. Listen carefully, use the wisdom wisely, and buy another copy of Been There, Done That to give to another aspiring sista."

Life Can Be Hard
"Wilma Brockington has compiled a wonderful book on lessons life has taught older women, and their advice is good and strong. It is a book that needs to be read by women regardless of their age or where they are in life. It gives good tips on how to be happy, how to be successful and how to rear great children who turn out to be wonderful, self-sufficient adults. It is definitely a must read."

"What a beautiful insight into the life of women of wisdom and knowledge. A view into the lives of those that came before us and some that came after us. Wisdom is always thought to be wasted on the young; but reading Been There, Done That, I became a human sponge and absorbed in every lesson in the book. Good read Ms Brockington."
