I've Come to Say Goodbye

A Memoir Of Friendship, Loss & Love

From beige Australia to dazzling India, the intrepid Barbara Carmichael takes us on a poignant journey of friendship and selfdiscovery.

A big-hearted tale of travel, family and the strange hand of destiny that can bring people together — and tear them apart.

I’ve Come to say Goodbye is the story of an incredible friendship between two unlikely people, a 50-something artist and a 32-year-old Indian spice merchant named Tarun. Over a ten-year period the author traveled back and forth to India spending time with Tarun in Udaipur, Rajasthan.

She became part of his family and he became like a brother. Through his eyes, she saw and fell in love with India. It is a story that you will fall in love with too.
