Rosewater is an Arab-Canadian novella composed of two short stories- “ Hab al Ruman” and “Sharbat”. “Hab al Ruman” is set in 1983 in Mount Lebanon and presents the mental journey of a single Muslim mother as she struggles to preside over her adolescent daughter’s future. “Sharbat” is set in 2012 in Southwestern Ontario and features the disjunctive psychological explorations of a young Lebanese-Canadian Muslimah as she struggles to liberate herself from the restrictive cultural binaries imposed upon her.
