First, time of travel is absurd.. flying around the world multiple times with nothing remotely plausible.
Second, there were more resurrections than on Easter morning. Everyone is related including the dead.
Third, an aid working in Australia of course hooks up with the dead brother of one of the protagonists, her dead father on one side of the battle, her mother and brother on another... all on the DL. Another protagonist's long dead brother is actually alive.. saved by throwing him in the fireplace with a refrigerator tossed in as a savior.

They get a 2nd chance and they make sooooo much money. The hot head son of the company founder is boring. The characters are shallow and the story verges on outright racism.
