Evil stepmother steals baby

Hi guys. I saw a film probably more than 10 years ago in the television, it must have been an American made movie. I think film is made in the 1990s. Problem is I cannot remember the title. I remember fragments of the film though.

As I recall the movie takes place in America around the late 18’th century to 19th century (maybe I’m wrong). The film is concerned a farther and a daughter (let’s call her A) at the age of +18. They own a little farm on the countryside. The mother is dead. The farther remarries a woman, who also has a daughter (B). The new stepmother is poor to A, and makes her do all the work. One day the stepmother kills the farther with a knife. A falls in love with a boy (C), his family owns a huge villa and are very rich. The stepmother wants B to marry the boy because of his family’s’ wealth. They invites C to the house, B tries to seduce him but as I recall he do not fall for it. Anyway, he goes to war – I think he dies. In the meantime, A is pregnant and now lives in a house by herself. She gives birth to a baby boy by the stream beside her house. Just when she holds the boy in her hands, the stepmother comes and takes the baby. The stepmother gives the baby to her own daughter, and claims that the baby is B and C’s child. Oh, I forgot to say that B has been wearing a fake pregnancy-stomach (?) since she tried to seduce C. Now, A is out of her mind, obviously, and tries to get back her baby, but no good comes with it. B is now living in the villa, where C grew up. One day A walks into the garden of the villa where the boy is playing, he runs towards her and asks who she is. B is watching them from the terrace. A then says “I’m a friend to your mother” or something like that. In the end I think A leaves the town.

My english is a bit rusty (apologize). Anyway, I hope you get the idea of the plot. I tried to put some of my thoughts in google, but little did it help. Hope some of you might now the film. I have been searching for a very long time. Thank you.
