Default Peter+Madlyn?!

Hey all, I've just reread the Pegasus series and was completely shocked by the Epilogue of Pegasus in Space when Anne McCaffrey tells us that Peter has married Madlyn, the extremely powerful telepath. Last we knew of Peter and his newfound physical prowess, he had been with Ceara, the medical empath. Anyone else confused by this or has this been addressed elsewhere?

Hm, I only recall that he was involved with a redhead at some point in time. Was that Ceara?

Your book must've had some kind of weird typo. The redheaded Ceara does end up with Peter.
From the epilogue, first page.[quote PiS] On the screen, former Commander Dash Sakai....Madlyn, his wife of many years, sat beside him.[/quote]

[quote PiS]Next page: Peter would occupy the third and now his wife, Ceara, smilingly beckoned for him to take his place. [/quote]

Indeed, Ceara married Peter and Madlyn married Dash Sakai. Both women had some trouble convincing their future husbands of their intentions, though.

aaahhh, now I see, thanks for clarifying, I must have misread it or missed some punctuation in there somewhere!

Possible, though those paragraphs are pretty far apart. There's also the fact that Ceara's mentioned as touching Peter or being in his arms in the epilogue, and the historian's notes after the epilogue list Madlyn Lovaro Sakai. Is there an issue that's missing those?

You might be think of a few other with red hair, and off the top of my head I do recall reading something about Madlyn and her use of powerful voice, and the generators in gestalt and how far her voice could reach, he was able to reach his mentor when needed to. Getting to tired to think.
