Girl gives birth, step-mother steals baby...

Looking for an Australian movie (or at least I think it was set in Australia), period drama (WWII I think). It's Cinderella-esque in that the girl's mother dies, father remarries, stepmother is evil, has a daughter who is also evil, father dies, girl is stuck with evil stepmother and step sister, ect. 
The main girl falls for this guy who the stepsister also likes. The guy likes the cinderella girl, they fall in love, she gets pregnant, he goes away to war. She winds up giving birth (in a lake I think) and the stepmother steals the baby and gives it to her own daughter to raise, telling people she had the baby with the guy the cinderella girl got pregnant with. I think the father of the child dies at war. I never saw the ending. It's in color, I'm not sure when it was made, possibly 90's, most likely 80's or later.

I've been searching everywhere for this movie, I found another person looking for it as well, so I know it has to be a real movie, but no one seems to know what it is.

Do you have the link to the other person looking for it?
It's on this page down a bit, posted only a few weeks ago. It hasn't gotten any responses  (other than mine saying I was looking for the same film) I've also posted this question on the IMDB message board I Need To Know,  with no response so far.
I am digging for you, but yahoo answers, as well as a few other movie question sites might be good to expand to, as I have looked for about 30 min, and came up blank. I will keep trying.

Edit: saw the year made in post.. .sorry.

Some of the details are a little off, but it sounds like "Jessica" (2004)
