Pollyanna Whyte is descended from 1000 generations of Irish Mothers even though she was born in London, England.  They may have been slightly more openly caustic in their communication style but blood runs thick.  The LDS aspect of her life is a complicated one, as a Feminist, a lover of the Sciences, a work outside the home Woman it was hard to find her niche but by being honest about her views and by being kind with other kind peoples feelings, she wiggled a place for herself and her family in the congregation and now fewer people roll their eyes at her.  Pollyanna is not her real name but taken from modern literature and alludes to always trying to find the best in a situation.  Missy is not Missy’s real name either, changed for privacy reasons.
