"You mean she isn't married?" Floria was surprised. "She must be at least thirty. But I can see how it might be difficult to find anyone willing to marry her. The Ridenow donas is empathy--but she doesn't even have the common courtesy to refrain from touching a telepath uninvited! To say nothing of her calling 'romantic' the fact that my husband and his brother were separated in infancy when their father was killed and their home burned over their heads, leaving each of them thinking the other dead."
"Actually, I have a theory about her," Gavin explained. "The Ridenow bred for empathy so that they could communicate with non-human species. I think Capella is the token non-human for the rest of the family to practice on."
