Question Acorna's Rebels: Miw- Sher's parentage?

I have just finished reading Acorna's Rebel & read something that doesn't gel. According to the book Miw-Sher is a young teenager between 13 - 17 years old. Her parents are said to be Nadhari Kando & steppe-cousin Edu Kando. The problem I have is that it states that Nadhari left her planet as a young woman 19 - 21 years old then returned after the age of being able to bear children, 45 years old at the earliest. Would not Miw-Sher be her grandchild (or great-grandchild) instead of her child? Is this a mistake on the authors part or am I reading it wrong.

I think you've discovered another Anne-nomaly.
