I’ve caught a glimpse of this movie around 2005 so it is from earlier time. Story evolves around family living in a farm with three or more children and two of them (at least) are boys. Father brings home his teenage daughter from previous marriage and the story evolves around her getting used to new environment. At one point there is fire in the house and the daughter saves one of her half-brothers and gains appreciation from stem-mother but also burns her hands. Things I remember, I imagine mother to look something like Toni Collette in one scene she is wearing denim overalls and the youngest son is sitting on her lap in the kitchen. Teenage daughter has straight brown medium-length hair. After fire mother helps first daughter with treatment for her burnt hands. Sadly that’s all I remember but maybe it could ring a bell for at least one of you.

That is a 1998 Hallmark Hall of Fame movie The Echo of Thunder. It was filmed in Australia and stars the talented Judy Davis and Jamie Sheridan. Sheridan’s first wife left him and took their young daughter to the United States to live a bohemian life as a singer. When the ex-wife dies of cancer, Sheridan welcomes his teenage daughter into his new family. He is now married to Judy Davis and they have three children together. The family works very hard operating a small farm that raises ornamental palm trees. Judy Davis plays a very stern, hard woman. She is opposed to her husband taking in his daughter and does little to make the girl feel welcomed. The two are in a constant struggle for power. The teenage girl does get along well with two of her young siblings. By the end of the movie, the step-mother finally accepts her step-daughter. She has proven herself to be a fine young girl. Heroically saving her little brother in a fire (burning her hands in the process), and driving her near-fatally injured step-mother to the hospital.
