not-so-wicked stepmother needed

For a semi-original I'm writing, I need a folk tale where a stepmother drives her stepdaughter out of the house and the girl then goes on to have some sort of adventure (or has an adventure happen to her). Hansel and Gretel would be ideal here apart from the fact I don't want to deal with the stepson as well. And not Snow White either, because she's my main character already ;)

Any folk tradition or mythology, any fairy tale writer, anything at all. Please help?

EDIT: What I really need is the girl-being-driven-from-home thing, because I want a missing-person investigation. And no, the wicked stepmother from Cinderella won't cut it either - I already have Cin as another character ;)
