Why is it A particularly good time for Tom to undertake his new caree?
Answers 1Add Yours
Tom sets out to find both his wife and the valuables she disappeared with, and instead finds her heart and liver tied up to a tree in her checked apron. Tom is more upset by the loss of the valuables than the loss of his wife; in fact, he uses the latter as consolation, and acknowledges that Old Scratch has actually done him a service by getting rid of her. Tom can have a fresh start now!
